Real Costs and Caveats: Remodel Project: Gut Rehab (3)
In Parts 1 and 2 of this series we took a look at Sellers who choose to put in about $3,000 in a cosmetic updates – i.e. granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a new coat of paint simply- figuring that potential Buyers simply will “fall in love” . And we peeked at
Buyer’s Real Costs of Up-Fitting an older home- noticing we might need to figure on a spending plan of somewhere between $ 50,000 to 100,000.
We asked (and thought it would be advisable) for both Buyers and Sellers to sit down to talk with local experts –such as the Asheville rehab experts we recommend here in Asheville— as opposed to relying on data from an online source.
In Part 3— The Real Remodel Project: Gut Rehab we get a more specific as we consider what's on the table: Opening up floor plans can change the dynamics a whole building from HVAC to mechanical systems .(see graphic)
Sprucing up a place for sale is a lot different than doing a serious “Up-Fit” that includes framing, the dimensions of interior walls and chases, and the locations of bathrooms and kitchens, plumbing and possibly a more efficient building envelope.
We are not experts in this area, but we have been around Asheville for a long time and can refer you to excellent professionals. In the meantime, you may want to refer to a Green Gut Rehab Case Study we are fond of showing our clients.
