Selling your home can be an extremely stressful experience. Not only are you parting ways with a loved abode, somewhere that you’ve perhaps raised your family, you’re also getting ready for a massive financial transaction. You obviously want to ensure that you’re getting the highest price for your property, so you have the funds to either upgrade or downsize and pocket the difference.
When it comes to home improvement, undertaking a full-scale remodel has never been more popular. As land transfer taxes (LTT) make it incredibly expensive to move in Canada, many homeowners are instead choosing to convert their current property into their dream home. While it used to be more common to do some smaller-scale renovations — the kitchen, the bathroom, maybe some flooring — it’s now typical to gut a place to the studs and builds it back up from scratch to get exactly the kind of fixtures, flooring, and layout that you want.
