We are very frequently asked about what people should do to their homes.
Standard question. But the standard answer is: It Depends.
We ask: What are the objectives? Make it more comfortable? Update the Kitchen? Add a room?
But one thing that should be considered is the projects that return the greatest return on the dollars spent to do the job. There are many surveys that offer advice but the one that, for us, seems to have the greatest value is the annual survey from Remodeling Magazine.
in the Instant Index below, check out the projects that increased the value of the real estate. We think there are some surprises. The first on the list is replacing a garage door,... after all a home buyer is certainly going to be interested in that... particularly if the garage is on the front side of the home.
