Should You Remodel or List Your Home For Sale?

If youve been watching a lot of HGTV, you may be in the mood to make changes. Is it time to remodel? Or is it time to sell?

Just like anything that gets a lot of use, homes show wear and tear after a few years. Certain color schemes and decorative >

Some market conditions are in your favor -- interest rates are still extremely low and below where they were a year ago and the economy is improving, so youll likely get much of what you spend to improve your home back when it comes time to sell.

The question to answer is this: If you improved your home the way you want, would you want to stay in it for a few more years, or are you ready for a complete change?

Home improvements can be substantial, such as adding a bedroom and bath to the existing footprint of your home or outfitting a kitchen with new countertops, cabinets and appliances. You want your home to support the standards set by your neighborhood, but you also dont want to end up with the most lavish house on the block.

To get started, put together the right team. If you arent moving walls or pouring a new foundation, you probably wont need an architect, but you will need the right contractors, kitchen planners and interior designers to help you put it all together.

Youll also need to talk to your lender to learn how much you can borrow and whether the current market value will support the facelift.

As youre putting together bids, you may find more work is required that you werent expecting. Plan for problems to come up, change orders and delays on materials, so you wont get upside down with expenses or sideways with your contractor.

Before you make a decision on remodeling, make sure you are going to get what you want at the price you want to pay and that youll be happy with the results for at least several years to come.

If youre not sure the remodel is the way to go, you can talk to your real estate professional. Be honest with your agent that you are considering remodeling, but that you are also open to finding another home. Your agent might know of homes for sale that have the size, features and finishes youre wanting. After you view a few homes, you should have a better idea of what you want and what you like.

You and your agent will also discuss selling your home. He or she will create a comparative market analysis of similar homes to yours that have sold recently and are currently for sale so youll know what you can reasonably expect to net from the sale of your home. From these homes, youll learn how long homes are staying on the market and if other sellers are getting their asking prices. Together you and your real estate professional can discuss a price range for your home, based on its location and condition.

Keep in mind that all markets have ups and downs so what your agent can show you is only a snapshot of whats true today. If youre happy with where your home ranks amid the competition, then it should be a good time to list your home for sale.

Change is an evolution, and will bring some upheaval to your life. Youll either have to open your home to workers or to buyers. But if you come out on the other side with what you and your household desire, it will all be worth it.

Okay Procrastinators, You Have One More Chance To Refinance

Stop me if youve heard this before. Is it time to refinance your mortgage? Okay, just kidding. Dont stop me. Keep reading. Mortgage rates have been so low for so long that borrowers who could have refinanced likely already have. Still others couldnt refinance because there wasnt enough equity in their homes. Or, some were just waiting for rates to move down just a little. bit. more.

For those perennial procrastinators, it just might be that time.

According to Freddie Macs weekly mortgage survey, the 30 year fixed rate dipped below 4.00 for the first time since the summer of 2013. Not by much, as the average fell to 3.92 as of the October 23 report and has since popped up to 4.01. Understand, thats a national average, and you can likely find slightly better rates with a few phone calls, but thats still very low. And for those who are waiting to squeeze out another .25, its best to be prudent and lock instead of playing the waiting game. Again.

Who should refinance right now? If you have a loan thats about five years old, your 30 year rate is somewhere in the low 5.00 range. If your loan was funded in 2008, a scant six years ago, rates then were mostly above 6.00. In either case, exploring a refinance is a good idea. But dont just look at the rate, theres more to it.

Payback Time

The interest rate is just one component when considering a refinance. If refinancing because you can lower your monthly payment, think of the closing costs involved before you get too far into the process. Lets say you got a 30 year fixed rate mortgage back in June of 2009 at 5.25 on a loan of 250,000. The principal and interest payment is 1,380. After about five and half years, the loan has amortized down to 228,113 after having paid a tad over 70,000 in tax deductible interest.

Now say closing costs amount to 5,000 and you rolled those costs into your loan. The new loan might then be 233,113 and with a 4.00 rate, the principal and interest payment is 1,112 for a monthly savings of 230. Not bad. By dividing 5,000 in closing costs with the 244 reduction, in just over 20 months, the lower payments add up to more than the closing costs associated with the loan.

Your loan officer can offer various rate and fee combinations to offset some or all of the closing costs associated when refinancing, but the "payback time" analysis works the same.

So, this is a good deal, right? Lowering a monthly payment by 230?

Losing Interest?

This may not be your best move. Yes, increasing cash flow is a positive but youre forgetting something. To the tune of 70,000. Refinancing from a 30 year loan to another 30 year after having paid into a mortgage for five years? Youve just extended the loan you already had for another 30. In effect, you now have a 35 year loan.

Thats a tradeoff and something loan officers may not always express. Lowering your monthly payment always sounds good but reamortizing the loan over 30 years might not be your best financial decision. However, trade the 30 year note with a 25 year loan. The rate is typically the same as a 30 year term but youre not extending the loan. With a 4.00 rate, a 25 year note on 233,113 the principal and interest payment is 1,230. That still saves 112 per month and youre still saving more interest over the long haul.

Shorter loan terms have higher monthly payments but the amount of interest paid is lower and equity is gained at a quicker pace. That means it can make sense to refinance today for the sole reason to shorten the loan term and spend less on interest.

Lower rates are a key factor when refinancing but dont get too caught up in the weeds. Theres more to it than lowering the monthly payment. Carefully consider the term of the loan just as much as the rate. A refinance isnt something you should be talked into. The math will be your impartial guide.

Your Black Friday Cheat Sheet

Its almost here. Black Friday. We mean Thanksgiving. Oh, who are we kidding? We love Black Friday almost as much as we love Turkey Day. In fact, the two have become nearly interchangeable for us and most of the country, for that matter. We spend too much money on one day for both of them. They both take oodles of preparation. And they both tend to leave us with a stomachache.

Same for you? We can help with the preparation part. We spend a considerable amount of time scouring Black Friday sites and sales, and our legwork is your gain.

Several sites are dedicated to Black Friday, posting leaked ads, new sales, and updating regularly. Out favorite is BFAds. Truthfully, all of the most-visited sites for Black Friday are typically going to have the same info, so really it comes down to personal preference in terms of site organization. BFAds doesnt just tell you there is an ad and link to it. They also break down the best deals and provide individual links to each of them.
