Big Decisions in a Bad Economy

Dear Expert: How do I evaluate whether to renovate or build new in the current economy?
A: It’s stressful as a homeowner to evaluate all of your options without the help of an expert. Architects can make a great sounding board—share your ideas with them, take them to look at a new property, and show them your existing home. This is such an important piece of the process to get right. Once decided, you can feel confident going forward that you made an informed choice.
