An excerpt from an article by Lorraine Hart, President of Ideal Consulting Services, appearing in Remodeling Today:
Sometimes we allow forces outside of us to dictate our decisions, plans and actions. This has never been as true as it has been in this current economic climate. Unfortunately some of our decisions, especially those based on fear, hurt us more than they help us. Waiting to put our plans into action because we’re afraid of the economy may be the worst thing we could do.
Rather than lamenting that lemon that life or the economy has thrown at you, let’s look at how you can make lemonade.
Fortunately there are a lot of reasons to do that project now.
For those of you who decide to go ahead now, you will not only end up with a home that is worth more in the future, but you will have added months and years of enjoyment of your remodeled home. For those of you with children, keep in mind that their childhood doesn’t last forever, so why not maximize their time in their remodeled home.
Now may be the ideal time to plan your dream vacation in your own home. As you look around also keep in mind that the project doesn’t have to be huge to create the effect you need and want.
Do it now so that you can enjoy it sooner.
