Finishing your basement or attic are two of the best remodeling investments you can make; with both options you get a lot more living space for a fraction of the cost of adding a ground floor or second story addition. Costs per square foot range from just $25 to $100 for finishing these rooms.

2. No one else is starting remodels in the fall! Most homeowners think spring is the time to start a remodel and tend to wait until after the holidays to start their remodels. You are likely to get better responses from contractors and builders when you call in the fall versus calling in the spring to ask for a quotation. Contractors and builders are often short of work come November and December, so they will welcome your call in August for a quote on a basement or attic finishing project.

3. If you work quickly, you can even get a kitchen remodel completed before entertaining for the holidays.
