Well, you've shopped for a Greenville home and decided on a fixer upper! Now what? There are plenty of advantages to owning a home that needs a little TLC but the reality is you've signed yourself up for an adventure that will require a bit of planning :)
First things first, you need to determine how much money you'd like to spend on home renovation projects. In addition to this it's also good to consider how much time you'd like to invest as well. It's easy to day dream about a kitchen upgrade but you should consider how long you might be willing to live without a sink! Really, you should take a bit of time to consider how cost effective the upgrades are that you want. With all this in mind, here are my top planning tips to help ensure that your upcoming renovation (large or small) goes as smoothly as possible!
Assess The State Of Your Greenville Home
Take a good honest look around at your new Greenville home. Really determine what needs attention and try your best to make your renovation wish list according to what really needs your attention.
Ask an Expert
Before you start your project, it's always a good idea to check in with someone who's had experience with the project you're interested in. While you may still choose to roll up your sleeves to do a lot of the work yourself, it's always helpful to get a clearer idea of what you're in for before you start.
Be Prepared to Change Course
Sometimes even the best plans don't come to fruition exactly the way we want. It's important to be flexible and be prepared to make additions and adaptations to your project. There will be times when you won't get the exact supplies you want or things aren't delivered within the time frame you need. Take a deep breath and focus on moving forward.
