Should I Do A Trendy Remodel? / by Keith Moehle

IT’S always fun to keep up to date with trends! Anything can catch your eye from a pink stove, black walls, or a funky backsplash color, but trendy updates can cost you more than the initial price in the long run.

It’s standard to say that the more trendy you go, the faster it will go out of style. Trends tend to age quickly which can leave homeowners with an untrendy upgrade. Although San Antonio trends tend to stay the same for a long time they aren’t drastic trends either.

If you have your heart set on a particular trend, you should go for it! It may not stay “trendy” to others, but you may love it just the way it is.

A good rule of thumb is to invest in something that you love and be able to get a good resale value, so it’s a win-win situation. If you plan to sell in the next five years, we recommend avoiding super trendy updates, because you may have to change them out to be more attractive to potential home buyers.

However, sometimes a poor resale value is the trade off for the trendy space of your dreams. It’s up to you to decide if it’s worth it for you.
