Serving you with passion!

Fall can be a time when many people start to look at their homes and wonder what they should do for upkeep, to freshen things up a little, or even make some large changes. When contemplating projects and renovations, it's not a bad idea to consider the investment as it relates to resale value for your home. 

Did you know that only some renovations will get you more money when you sell?

You don't always get your money out of every renovation when you sell. I thought the below list of average costs compared to the return on the investment of that renovation was an interesting read. I hope you do too. Keep in mind that estimates are based on a sale directly following the renovation.
