    Remodeling Your Santa Clarita Home, Examining Your Budget

    Remodeling your homeWhen remodeling your Santa Clarita home, examining your budget is a key element, going hand-in-hand with the physical aspects of the job. Remodeling and basic improvements can add value to your real estate and approaching the work with fiscal responsibility will help maximize your profit. When making changes to your home it is easy to get carried away, adding features and altering products as you go along. Depending on the scope of your project, hiring a contractor that will design the project and a budget could be the wisest step to make keeping someone financially in charge of the work at hand.

    A kitchen remodel can run from $17,000 to over $50,000. The difference in budget can be related to fixtures, the scope of work, finishes chosen, appliances, and more. There is high-end and low-end and everywhere in between. To do a high-end remodel at a low-end price takes a lot of homework and shopping around to find appliances and finishes at discount prices.

    After determining your plans and finances what can affect your remodeling budget?

    • Where you buy your supplies
    • Who you hire to do the work
    • Changes to work orders

    Cutting corners to save money should be examined at the onset of a project. Maybe you will decide that you want a Sub Zero refrigerator more than granite counter tops. Where you add in one area, you can subtract in another. Just remember that your end result will affect the overall value and appeal of your home.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
