Whether you’re looking to buy your first home or a long-term homeowner with an outdated layout, you probably have a lot of questions. Our 2019 national renovation stress survey revealed that Chicago residents ranked #1 in wanting to know more about the nuts-and-bolts of remodeling: specifically, what to ask on a site visit, budget basics, how to compare estimates, and potential hidden costs to watch out for. (In fact, Chicagoans were 2nd only to New Yorkers in finding a home renovation stressful.)
