Welcome to the final blog of our mini-series on the renovation timeline from start to finish. People often ask us what a renovation looks like from start to finish, so we decided to lay it out for you to follow along. This blog series is all about embracing bliss and reveling in the marvel of your transformed space. You’ve done the work, the renovation looks amazing, it’s styled, and it’s ready to hit the market. Now it’s time to look back, reward yourself, enjoy it, and breathe it all in.
So, let’s go through a few things that should happen once your renovation is complete and your property is on the market..
Regroup, Reflect and Repeat:
The theme for this blog is all about reflecting on the transformative journey of the project. Renovation isn’t just about numbers and profit; it’s a personal journey. Take a moment to reflect on how you’ve grown personally through this process. Many people underestimate the significance of personal growth during a renovation journey, but it’s a big deal. From gaining confidence to earning admiration from friends and family, it’s a transformative experience.
Embrace Bliss and Reward Yourself:
After the hard work of the renovation, don’t forget to reward yourself. Renovating is a sprint, and when it’s in full swing, it can be intense. But there can be downtime in between projects. Use this time to treat yourself, take a well-deserved break, and enjoy the rewards of your hard work. Remember, it’s not a competition; you can renovate at your own pace.
Breath in Your Success:
When you walk through your transformed space, let it make you feel proud. Don’t just focus on what could have been better; appreciate the beauty of what you’ve created. Take a mental journey from how the property looked before to how it is now, and let that boost your confidence for future projects. Success is a personal win, so savor it.
Admire Your Style and Creativity:
Your design choices and styling have turned an ordinary house into a beautiful home. Admire your own style and appreciate the uniqueness you’ve brought to the project. Remember, you’re not just creating a house; you’re creating a home for someone else to enjoy. Your choices have added value to the property and will be appreciated by its future owners.
Embrace Positive Feedback:
Listen to the positive comments from friends, family, and potential buyers during open inspections. Don’t dismiss compliments; they can boost your confidence and validate your hard work. However, be mindful of constructive criticism from real estate agents. They may be conditioning you to set realistic expectations for the market.
Celebrate the Financial Rewards:
Renovating isn’t just about improving the property; it’s also about enriching your life and financial future. Earning a profit from a renovation is a significant achievement. It’s an opportunity to save or reinvest your money wisely, setting you on a path toward financial independence and the freedom to make choices.
Renovating isn’t solely about the numbers; it’s about the emotional benefits and personal growth that come from creating something beautiful and valuable. So, breathe in your success, reward yourself, and take pride in the transformative journey you’ve embarked on. Renovating is a gift you give to both yourself and others, and it’s something that can be enjoyed at your own pace.
