At INTRABUILD, we have over a decade of experience executing full-apartment renovations across NYC. We work with a large group of architects, designers and management companies and have amassed extensive experience managing projects of every scope.
Whether this is your very first apartment renovation or you have done this a time or two, there are some important things to know and prepare as you embark on this journey.
BEFORE YOU GET STARTED
The two most crucial things you can do are
- Set goals for the project and
- Set your budget – and make sure these items are aligned and realistic.
If you only want to spend $25,000 and want to gut renovate your entire 1,500 sf apartment, that’s not realistic. You would be better served to prioritize a complete bathroom renovation or knocking down a wall to create a more open floor plan.
It is also important to understand two very important things depending on which end of the market you are on: if you are looking to sell your apartment, a solid renovation will yield a higher sales price for your property. If you are looking to purchase an apartment, you may come out ahead financially if you purchase a fixer-upper that needs a full restoration.
Once you establish what your goals and budget are for your renovation, you’re ready to kick off the renovation process.
