Buying and Starting the Home Remodeling Process

B

uying your first home can be an exciting endeavor. However, most homes are not exactly

what you are looking for, but many home remodeling projects can be done to make your

house custom to your specifications. If you have purchased a new home, and are

wondering where to begin with this process, here are a few simple suggestions to think about as

you begin the home remodeling process.

Start with the Simple Home Remodeling Projects

There is a difference between home remodeling and home redecorating. Decorating usually

follows home remodeling- focusing more on fabrics, paint, and other forms of décor. Home

remodeling is a more extensive process, usually requiring both demolition and reconstruction. If

you are attempting to do home remodeling on your own, it is best to start with simple projects

first.

Before you begin any project, you should do some research. You don’t want to hang new drywall

if you need to install new electric or plumbing. Home remodeling requires the ability to think

ahead, to ensure that you do not have to do the work twice. You will want to research what

supplies you will need, what the cost of labor would be if you need to hire out, and how long a

project should take you.

Financing Home Remodeling Projects

You have just spent thousands of dollars purchasing a new home. Prior to purchasing the home,

after you attend the open house and have the inspection taken care of, you may be able to talk the

previous owners down to help you finance some

previous owners down to help you finance some of the new home remodeling projects that you

have. Many families need to wait years before starting major projects. By starting with simple

projects, you may be able to afford several small projects, acquire the tools necessary to

complete larger projects, and learn some of the how-to’s that will help you in the future.

There are some grants available for new homeowners to help them with home remodeling

projects, and even some tax deductions may be applicable depending on your circumstance. By

saving a little money, say 10% of your paycheck each month, you will be able to conquer one or

two projects per year. Some projects can cost tens of thousands of dollars, life roofing, so in the

process of saving for your home remodeling projects, keep an eye out for used building supplies

or tools that may come in handy later.

Precautions for Home Remodeling

If you have purchased an older home, there are two things that you really need to be aware of if

you are starting home remodeling projects. The first is asbestos, and the second is lead. Older

homes were constructed with materials that don’t necessarily meet today’s codes. As you

complete building permits, you may want a professional to come in and examine the room that

you are remodeling to see if any mitigation is necessary.

Home remodeling doesn’t have to be a daunting process as a new homeowner. You have all the

time in the world to make yourself a home. Take your time to do the research involved. As time

goes on and decades pass, you may find yourself repeating this process to update your living

space. Your house is your sanctuary, and there are plenty of opportunities to learn throughout the

process.
