If you’re looking at a property that you want to renovate, or add on to, having an accurate budget for the construction costs is essential before making an offer. How can you come up with a realistic budget? Consult a professional! We have helped many of our clients navigate through similar situations.

A client recently came to us while looking to purchase a 1.1-million-dollar home in Philadelphia. They planned to do extensive renovations if the price of both the house and the renovations fit into their budget. Souder Brothers took a site visit to review the project and help the owners come up with a construction wish list and a budget to go along with it. With this knowledge in hand our client was able to make an informed and educated decision regarding purchasing their new home.

Top 5 reasons to consult with a contractor before purchasing a home you plan to renovate:

  1. Obtaining an accurate construction budget from a qualified professional will help you determine if the renovations fit into your home buying budget

Without having a construction budget, a homeowner may find after purchasing a home that they don’t have enough funds to complete their renovations. Avoid this by finding out beforehand if both the home and the upgrades fit into your budget.

  1. Get rid of the guess work
