There are many decisions to make when looking to upgrade from your current home to a more modern and functional living space. One of those decisions is considering a tear down verses a home renovation. It can be a complex decision that involves considering you available time, money and sanity.
The first step is to evaluate your existing home to determine if it makes sense to consider a tear down or would a renovation be the better option. Here are some things to consider:
Your home is smaller than most homes in your neighborhood: Tear Down
Your home is average size to larger compared to homes in your neighborhood: Renovate
Your home is in poor shape: Tear Down
Your home is in good shape or better: Renovate
Your home is on a large lot with space to grow: Tear Down
Your home fills most of your lot space: Renovate
Older home with few bathrooms and small kitchen: Tear Down
Space available to increase kitchen space and add or increase bathroom space: Renovate
Lot is worth far more than the house itself: Tear Down
House value is near to or exceeds lot value: Renovate
Local Zoning Rules
