Dee Dee Brix answered:
-Remodeling is replacing existing fixtures/floors/cabinetry etc.
-Rebuilding (to me) means "gut-renovating", gutting down to the studs so the work includes new electrical wiring, new insulation, new pipes, but the original structure is used.
-New construction is when a brand new home is built on land - or after the existing structure was torn down. Even the studs are new. Sometimes the owner/builder leaves the existing foundation but the entire structure above ground is brand new, and I still call that 'New Construction'.

I would suggest that you consult with a couple general contractors and go from there. Do you need a loan?

Susie Kay answered:
It's hard to put a value on this as it depends on whether the future buyer has a dog or enjoy having dogs nearby. How the park is maintained will determine whether this has a positive or negative value as well. If you want to increase the value of your home typically you'd want to upgrade it such as having hardwood floor, granite counter top, updated kitchen etc. However, before you start upgrading I would suggest that you work with a local realtor to compare your home to other similar homes in the area. Then you can determine what upgrades/updates you'd like to do.

I hope this makes sense!

A single picnic table is not going to add any monetary value, but a property that appears well-kept will sell faster. Good luck!

Home Owners Association. Homeowners pay a fee for the HOA to take care of common areas. They have rules and sometimes wont let homeowners to what they want with their property. They seem to make changes as they please and ask homeowners to take down a fence etc.
what are the rules regarding renovating an addition/sunroom at Camarillo Springs Community.
