How to Prioritize Home Projects as an Alaskan Homeowner
When you first move into a home in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla or North Pole, you might be overwhelmed with home project ideas. From painting the house to renovating the kitchen, it's hard to prioritize what needs to be done and how to stay on budget.
Take notes around the home
Any time you decide to take on a home project, you should plan out the process and assess the conditions of the space. For instance, what needs to be done versus what you'd like to get done first. Is the flooring damaged? Are the appliances not running their best? These may be prioritized ahead of simply changing out paint colors that you don't love.
Determine your budget
Just as you did before buying a home in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Eagle River, Palmer, Wasilla North Pole, or the surrounding areas, you need to set a budget. It's easy for home projects to get out of hand, especially if you don't have a dollar amount in mind. You do not want to go into debt over one single home project, so be mindful of what you're spending!
Write out your plan
Now that you know what needs to be done and how much you can spend, it's time to make a plan. Write out your strategy for your home projects, whether that means you go from room to room or you plan to tackle the home as a whole, such as painting every space. Also take into account how much energy you have to devote to each project. If you've just moved into your Alaska home, you might not feel up to a big task!
