Welcome back to Stay Focused, Focus Real Estate’s weekly video series! And I’m Erik Gould. I’m Randal Engelmann. And
this week we’d like to chat and talk about how prioritize your home
improvement projects. Oh! Home improvement projects, right?
Randal loves a good project. Gina-Marie will be so disappointed that
this is gonna run so much longer than she wants it to. I love home improvement
projects. Well, I like a project. How do you prioritize? Well, after
having done several home improvement projects, speaking from experience, I have
to say that the best way to prioritize your home improvement projects is start
by looking at a big picture. Look at the whole project. Look at everything that
you want to accomplish in your house. Don’t just look at your kitchen. Don’t
just look at your bathroom. Don’t just look at one piece. Look at the entire
thing and come up with a master plan. But come up with a plan for the whole
house, right? Know what you’re working with. Because what happens is sometimes people decide, “Well,
I’m gonna do the kitchen.” And then once they dive into the kitchen. they realize
that something else needs to be done and they don’t have a plan for that and they
don’t accommodate for plumbing, electrical, ceiling height, flooring. Stuff like that. A little
planning ahead. If you have a master plan to look and tackle the entire project, you
can break that into small bite sized pieces. And hire an architect. Hire
somebody that can put some things into drawings for you. It’s really really
helpful that when you’re working with a contractor that they understand what you
want done and it’s in black and white. Call us also if you have a question. As
you know, so many of these projects spiral out of cost. Out of cost.
You want to chat with us about some ROI. Some Return On your Investments. We always say the most
important thing you can do is really to do your project for YOU. So you can live in
it, enjoy it, love it. But also with the consideration of resale. You never know
what’s around your next corner. Be a little bit forward-thinking. Do it for you, but think
about how long you’re gonna use it and when you might sell and what you might
get out of it. Is it worthwhile? And we can help you weigh those kinds of pros
and cons and the return on investment. There’s also a couple of good reports out there
on ROI. Cost vs value for different projects that we can get you. Yep. So have
a plan. Use an architect. Think about resale. And call us you have any questions.
