A. It’s a question every homeowner wants to answer. In today’s age we find our clients are quite reno-savvy. Many access HGTV, Youtube and Google before meeting us, so our clients have an idea of what they want. Having a ballpark savings or budget number in mind is something we strongly encourage.
That way, we can help you manage your expectations. Providing us with this information (no, you don’t hand us your money, it’s simply a figure at this point) allows us to give you an idea of whether your wants outweigh your budget or if you could have more items within the scope of the project.
The truth is no budget number can be 100% certain without a unique cost analysis, based on personality, availability, and needs of the home itself as it has aged. If you are going to buy a house, you know how much you can afford, so it should be the same process when renovating a home.
