Why It’s Cheaper for a NYC Home Renovation vs. Moving to a New Place

January 13, 2021

There’s no denying the appeal of moving into a new place. The longer you live somewhere, the more the annoyances and inconveniences compound. Whether you’ve outgrown the space, or it’s just never reflected your style and aesthetic, a renovation is an affordable way to fall back in love with your home. Many people don’t consider renovating their homes when they’re frustrated by the lack of style or storage. Most times, you can get the high-end interior of your dreams for a lot less than moving.

Here are some key things to consider when deciding to renovate or move.

What’s going on in the real estate market.

Growing dissatisfaction with your home rarely coincides with an ideal real estate market. The timing of getting fed up with a dark kitchen or cramped bedroom probably doesn’t coincide with the ideal time to sell to get the most of your investment.

Instead of ignoring a powerful impulse to move, reach out to a home renovation expert like VIR Construction. We’re NYC’s premier design and construction company for high-end interiors. Tell our experienced design team the things you wish were different in your current home. Our construction experts will create a brand new interior you love.

Location, location, location; do you love where you live?

There’s not much you can do if you hate your neighborhood or borough except move. However, it’s not worth the expense and hassle of relocating if you love where you live and just wish your home had a few original features. Renovating instead of relocating means you can transform your current residence into your dream home. Even high-end custom finishes are a fraction of the cost of buying a new place.

If you’re struggling to connect with a place in the neighborhood you love, remember that a home renovation from VIR Construction can transform any interior into the perfect place.

You can customize your home finishes.

You’d be in the minority if you loved everything about your new home at closing. Most homeowners have a list of things they’ve always wanted in their perfect home. Things like skylights, open-concept floor plans, massive kitchen islands, and extra bathroom storage are possible with a home renovation.

Instead of moving into a new home with a few of your favorite things, you can save money by renovating your current space into your perfect home. When you work with VIR Construction you benefit from our custom mill shop where we design and fabricate exclusive cabinetry, furniture, and finishes. We’ll help you make your home uniquely yours.

Moving is stressful, no matter how you go about it.

Everyone talks about the five primary sources of stress in life; it’s undeniable that moving is one of them. No matter how early you pack, or how organized you are, moving week is a chaotic, stressful mess. Trying to juggle work, family, and living out of moving boxes is an ordeal you only want to deal with once in a blue moon at the most.

VIR Construction executes home renovations with minimal disruption to your life. We transform your interior into the residence you’ve always dreamed of, and you never have to pack a moving box.
