Remodel or Sell?

Friday, November 14th, 2008 by Cynthia Freeney


It is definitely not a seller's market out there. Anyone trying to sell a house is facing more than the regular competition nowadays. They are competing with desperate builders trying to sell brand new homes an banks selling foreclosured properties at very to minimize their losses. Buyers have a lot of options and they know sellers are at disadvantage, so they will try to get the best value for their money.

In Calgary, according to Muchmor Magazine, prices are dropping consistently. Single family unit prices were 6% lower in September 2008 than they were a year ago.

What is a homeowner to do when more room is needed  for a growing family or aging parents for example? Remodel is the answer.

If you have an unfinished basement, you are in luck. A basement is a whole floor's worth to room that can easily be converted into  healthy, comfortable living space for about 50% less than the cost of building an addition.

However, make sure it is properly waterproofed and suitable for finishing.
