Do-It-Yourself remodeling projects are great and can save you lots of money.  But do you know the building codes?  What will a buyer ask if you sell your home later on?  Is it safe?  Lots of questions arise when we, as REALTORS® come across homes that have basements that were finished by the owners, decks that were added on, bathrooms that were finished, wiring that was done, and on and on.  Buyers are becoming wary of these DIY projects and are often asking for retroactive building permits.  It can get very expensive for a homeowner if they didn’t follow code requirements.  Click on the picture above for some very good advice if you are thinking of doing your own remodeling!  And don’t forget, Own This Home Team is here for ALL of your real estate needs.
