Spring Cleaning: Which Remodels Bring You the Most Return on Investment?
With spring time is right around the corner, I have been receiving phone calls from past, present and future clients who are thinking about remodeling their homes. If you are thinking about doing this as well, I have two articles will help guide you in your decision.
The first article, which can be viewed here, is a list that the National Association of Realtors, coupled with the National Builders Association, compiled on home renovation costs and their return-on-investment nationwide. These numbers may be slightly different locally, but overall they are spot on. This list ranges from changing your front or garage door to full-scale kitchen remodels.
I have been finding that people generally believe that if they remodel their kitchen, they will receive more money for the sale of their home. They may receive more money, but the cost of the kitchen remodel will typically outweigh the extra money received in your sale price.
The second tool that I wanted to show you was houzz.com. Houzz is a website that you can visit for inspiration during your remodeling projects. If you’re looking to remodel your kitchen, bathrooms or outdoor spaces, you can view other people’s finished projects and even find out, for example, what type of back splash or refrigerator they used. You can also find out who designed it and where they are located! To save your ideas, Houzz has a great feature, the “Ideabook,” that allows you to save your favorite projects in order to show them to your contractor.
As always, your referrals are very important to me and are the lifeblood of my business – so please keep sending them along. Thank you and I look forward to seeing you around town!
