Unless you built a custom home, you probably have a long list of things you’d like to improve in your current home. Browsing online listings might get you in the mood to upgrade to a new home, or you might be thinking about renovating your current home after binging on HGTV. The answer to renovation vs. relocation depends greatly on what you’re trying to fix.
Thinking about a new kitchen?If you’re dreaming of a chef’s kitchen with new appliances and beautiful cabinets, renovating your own kitchen gives you incredible ROI and is less costly than moving. You’ll increase the value of your own home if you ever decide to sell, and there’s a great sense of accomplishment that comes with completing a custom renovation.
Need more space?If you’re running low on bedrooms, there may not be a lot of options. Converting an existing room to a bedroom doesn’t create any new space. If you’re in a condo, an addition is probably impossible. And additions can be expensive even if it’s a possibility. Moving is usually the best option.
If the neighborhood isn’t idealYou may have seen some potential for your neighborhood when you first moved there, but perhaps it still isn’t welcoming the shops and restaurants you expected. If that’s the case, consider moving. There’s no sense in waiting years for the neighborhood to improve, especially if you can move to a house in the same price range in a more preferred part of the city.

"Emma, Brian and their Team are 100% amazing! As an owner of both investment properties and a handful of primary residences over the decades, we know the value and importance of using high performing teams - and this is one of them!
They were referred to us by multiple friends, colleagues and working professionals (including our Tax guy). Not only are they high-performing, they are super cool people! Their knowledge, experience, friendliness, professionalism, expediency, know-how, and one of the biggest traits - "neighborhood specialist" were instrumental in the recent sell of our Penasquitos home and purchase of our new Scripps Ranch home. We ended up selling for well over asking (and over our goal). The preparation and selling process were smooth and successful.
Emma and Brian then spent months with us viewing homes that were fairly limited due to our 'requirements' and a limited supply of homes in the areas we were looking in. They always seemed available whenever something came up that we wanted more info on or to go see. Their neighborhood experience and expertise was evident by knowing what streets to see and what streets avoid. Makes sense since they both live in and have bought/sold their own residences in Scripps. Then, Emma was able to get us into see a home in an exclusive neighborhood PRE-Listing, for which we submitted an offer that was accepted before it even listed.
