Benefits of Buying a Professionally Remodeled Home

Buying a home is never easy. You have to find the right location, the right size home, with a layout that makes sense for your family, and it has to be within your budget range. That’s a lot of qualifications, and if you’re looking at older homes, it can be hard to find a property that meets all of your goals without renovating or making big updates. But there is a solution. 

Have you considered buying a remodeled home from a developer or real estate investor? 

Professionals like the team here at Hometown Development often purchase properties in great areas that need a little love. We then restore and remodel those homes to fit the needs of the modern homeowner. For you, the buyer, this means you have the opportunity to purchase the home of your dreams, in the location of your dreams, without ever having to lift a finger. 

If you’re new to the idea of buying a professionally remodeled home, here are just a few of the benefits that come from purchasing a home that’s already been renovated:

 

Worry-Free Move-in

The most obvious benefit of purchasing a professionally remodeled home is the ability to move in immediately, without any real worries. If the home has been remodeled by professionals, you won’t have to wait for homeowners to move out or clean, and you can rest easy knowing that the condition you saw the home in when you toured it is the condition you’ll get when you move in. 

 

Good Bones

One amazing benefit of buying a remodeled home is that you have the opportunity to purchase a house that has all of the brand new luxury details and appliances you love, with the history and charm of an older home. It’s true when they say that they don’t build ’em like they used to. 

If you’ve always loved the look and layout of historic homes, but have been wary of the upkeep and maintenance an older home often needs, a professionally remodeled home may be the best way to get you everything you’re looking for without putting in the work.

 

Quality Finishes & New Appliances

If you’ve been looking for houses for a while now, you’re familiar with the disappointment that comes when you find a beautiful house with old, outdated finishes and appliances. Finishes like countertops, flooring, appliances, and even lighting are often the most expensive and most noticeable aspects of a new home. 

When a home is remodeled by professionals, those are some of the first things they’ll change. They know a homeowner wants to move into a home with beautiful finishes and upgraded, energy-efficient appliances. That’s one less thing you have to worry about when move-in day comes around. 

 

Quick, Professional Closing

There’s nothing worse than discovering the home of your dreams only to immediately become trapped in a long, complicated closing process. When you purchase a home that’s been professionally remodeled by home investors, you remove all of the worry and hassle from that process.

Professional renovators and investors want to sell the homes they’ve completed, and the good ones will have taken care of any complications with the home’s finances first, to ensure that they can sell the home in a reasonable time frame. They’re motivated to sell which means they’ll work to make the closing process easy on you. 

 

No Renovations, No Hassle

It’s often frustrating to think about buying a house that you’ll just have to turn around and put more money into. A great benefit that comes with purchasing a professionally remodeled home is that all of the work is done. If the home had issues with outdated plumbing or electrical, the renovator will have sorted out those issues. 

What’s more, home investors and professional remodelers keep a close eye on current home trends. That means they know what’s popular- whether it’s an open floor plan, quartz countertops, or a beautiful fireplace – and they’ll have worked to incorporate that into the home’s renovation. 

Bottom line? You end up with a home that’s in great condition and remodeled to fit the needs of the modern homeowner. 

 

Remember: Always Do Your Homework When Buying Any Home, Remodeled or Not

As home investors and professional remodelers ourselves, here at Hometown Development we always encourage home buyers to do their homework before signing on any home, but especially with recently remodeled homes. While we always pull the proper permits and work to ensure that every one of our homes is remodeled according to the latest code requirements, we know that there are “flippers” out there who aren’t taking the same professional precautions. 

If you’re buying a recently remodeled home, it’s always a good idea to look into the company who has completed the remodel and make sure you’re looking closely at every change they’ve made to ensure the work was done according to your area’s code requirements. And with any home that you plan to buy, always make sure you have a qualified, trusted home inspector come by to complete your inspection before you make the final decision.

Buying a professionally remodeled home is a great way to get a beautifully restored historic home in the neighborhood of your dreams.
