You may have heard that home remodeling is booming amid the COVID-19 crisis. Families are now at home together more and need changes to their homes to make things work for them. That’s a key reason many homeowners are reaching out to remodelers in record numbers. Here are five reasons you should take the leap and start on your own home remodeling project in 2021!
- Increase Your Home’s Energy Efficiency
Many homeowners not only change a layout to better suit their needs, they add energy-saving features like new windows, insulation and energy-efficient appliances. These changes create savings for years to come. An added benefit is that many energy-efficient appliances also include smart technology, so they add convenience with their energy efficiency.
- Add the Functionality & Features You Want or Need
With the increase in work-from-home careers and even remote learning, many families realize they need different features in their homes. That means either moving or working with experienced remodelers to make changes. If you are eating at home more and your kitchen lacks storage or even the right appliances, you may want to focus on a kitchen remodel. Additions are another common way to solve space issues, especially when you realize you need another bathroom or a home office.
- The Cost of Borrowing Is Low
In early December, the average 30-year mortgage rate dropped below 2.75%, one of the lowest average rates ever recorded. Whether you choose to refinance and use your monthly savings on improvements over time, or a cash-out refinance so you can hire remodelers to handle the work all at once, the time has never been better.
- Home Inventory Is Low
This makes moving a challenge, which is why families are turning to home remodeling companies in record numbers. One reason for low inventory is the cost of borrowing has made homebuying more affordable for many. Another is that the thought of coordinating home showings while working or learning remotely is a challenge, so fewer homes are hitting the market.
