Montebello kitchen
original kitchen at Montebello

One of the biggest questions every condo buyer and home buyer has to ask is, “How much work am I willing to take on?”

Some folks want a turnkey residence. Some folks want a residence that has brand new modern appliances and cabinets. Some people want appliances and cabinets that have never been used.

Some people don’t mind an older kitchen. Some people like the feel of a kitchen that was put in long ago.

Others like an older kitchen because they like the idea of ripping out the old and putting in the new. It can be very gratify—not to mention financially rewarding—to completely remake a residence.  As a homeowner, or condo owner, you are the ultimate authority. It is your domain to decide what will stay and what must go.  This can be a lot of fun.

But, remodeling can be a lot of work.  Living through the dust and the inconvenience can be a hassle. If you don’t know where to turn to, it can also be very expensive.  But no matter how you personally resolve the issue, it’s important to consider before you actually start shopping.
