Most of the homes we're seeing in our home search need remodeling - from updating/adding kitchens/baths to full-scale renovation (really old homes that haven't been updated in years, need everything). Who is the right person to bring in to see if any of these improvements make sense? We'd like to get 1) ideas about what could be done to a house and 2) a ballpark estimate. Also, do you pay this person for their time? I know most professionals would probably look at a house or two, but we're considering about 4 completely different homes with different levels of renovation needs. Should we pay someone an hourly fee for this?
We already have a great realtor who is helping us with our search, but I've also gotten different advice from designers I know. Looking to get some additional opinions. Also, we are planning to live in the house, not flip it, and can live in our current home during renovations.
