Those Amazing Model Homes – Are They As Good As A Renovated Home?

Have you ever toured a new home model? Some of the new home builders have models on display that can make you drool. You can picture yourself in your new home with kitchen cabinets filled with the finest china and crystal, living rooms graced with amazing furniture and decor sans any “lived-in” clutter, bedrooms have custom built-in closets complete with designer lighting, bathrooms that will give you a tranquil spa experience every time you step inside. You would be king or queen of the neighborhood in your majestic new home. You get visions of sugar plums dancing in your head and all you can think about is this house. You might be surprised to find out that a local general contractor can make that dream come true with a home remodel.

That First Look Was Like A Honeymoon At A Five Star Resort But Compared To Remodeling

But at the end of the sales pitch, you’re told that if you buy one of these homes, it will cost between $100 000 and $300 000 more. That kind of money may go a lot further and get you closer to your dream home if you choose to remodel instead. I don’t know about people who don’t care much about the cost, but you’re probably asking yourself why is this house so expensive? You could spend that much and get a small fleet of new cars OR you could hire a remodeling contractor and get exactly what you want instead of a fancy upgrade that is only what the builder offers. Maybe they include options that you don’t really care about so much.

What New Home Buyers Actually Sign For Could Be Less

The builders pack everything imaginable into that tour-worthy model home but most often in Southern California, buyers get financed for the appraisal value of the base model and the plain white, bare-bones home can be decorated and furnished to no end but it’s no match for that exquisite home that lingers in your memory. Far from the model home showcase, you would be hard-pressed to find an actual new home as elegant as the dream model you remember from that first introductory tour.

The majority of homes are sold this way, and then re-sold without any real changes. These homes are white in one or maybe two shades, tile or perhaps obligatory granite countertops, and the most basic predictable economy versions of everything from stovetops to showers.

Most Brand New Homes Are Rather Plain And Need Remodeling

Are you looking for a newer home that may have more to offer than a builder’s base template? Some sellers will attempt to lure you by using the word “upgraded” when in fact they have only swapped out a few appliances or perhaps painted the walls something other than white. A custom renovation will get you a lot more.

How You Want Your Home To Look And Feel

There’s a long way to go to create your dream home, isn’t there? A true upgrade of your home means you’re transforming the home to something completely different than what you see when you first walked into your living room, kitchen, bedroom, or bath a few months or years ago. Upgrades should take your breath away, send chills down your spine, evoke an “oh my goodness!” reaction when you enter the room. Or at least that’s what it should do to a guest who’s seeing your renovated home for the first time!
