Why You Should Renovate Your New Home Before Moving In



You’ve signed the purchase and shaken hands with your real estate agent. Now the only thing left to do is pack and move into your new home. A fresh start in a new place is always exciting, but are you excited enough to move in without updating your new home first? You might want to hold off on that move and jumpstart your renovation by getting a bathroom or kitchen quote instead. The trusted home remodeling specialist in the area, DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greenville, shares why. 

Reasons to Renovate Before Moving In

  • You’ll want your new home spruced up to your standards. Here’s something that puts a damper on your experience as a new homeowner: moving into an unfinished place and seeing traces of the previous owners’ personality in the palette and surface materials. That’s okay for some people, but others would want to move into a home that’s already distinctly and truly theirs. For this reason, you should delay the move until after your major home renovation is done.
  • Key areas of your home will be ready and functional. Extensive renovations leave some crucial areas of your home, including the bathroom, kitchen, and bedroom, unusable in the meantime. This fact puts an extra layer of challenge to your daily life if you move into your new home before the remodel. For even more comfort and convenience, get a kitchen and bathroom estimate, start the renovation and stay put in your current place until everything is complete. 
  •   You won’t have to deal with the mess and noise.  Don’t you just envy people with nerves of steel? These are the ones who remain unbothered even with all the bustle, mess, and noise involved with a large renovation. Not everyone can coast along like that – eventually, the stress of a renovation will soon prove to be too much for a homeowner. You can avoid this simply by putting off your move until your new home is ready for habitation.  

When Is the Exception?

If you’re only doing minor upgrades, it may be reasonable to move into your new home before a renovation. This gives you ample time to note any other areas of improvement while allowing you to identify any fine architectural details you want to keep. Of course, this decision means living in a place that will soon be a work site, but this is what hiring a reliable remodeler is for. Whether you plan to move into your new home before a renovation (or not), DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Greenville will respect your decision. Using a proven and streamlined process, we’ll ease or remove the issues related to remodeling a new-to-you home.
