how do you get the most return on your real estate investment ?


The National Association of Realtors and Remodeling Magazine released a report comparing remodeling cost versus value. This resulted in several factors like location, work quality, market value in the neighborhood, the time in putting the house on the market and completion of the project. To get the most value of your home exterior upgrade is important like the roof, front entrance door, energy efficient windows and garage doors not to mention the landscaping all around your property.  The right paint color choice definitely add a lift. Building a pool or a storage shed in the backyard counts a lot. RV gates and parking for those outdoor toys is a plus.  Proper building permit and hiring a licensed and bonded contractor is a must. Interior part of the house comes next. Conversion of a vacant room to an office, room addition or a new kitchen with granite counter top and new cabinets are all time favorites. Tiled floor, bathroom remodel or a basement is a big selling point.  Hang pictures that are pleasing on the eyes for attention. Do you know that light fixtures with the right color add a cozy feeling?.  You want to make sure that your investment is comfortable to live in. Reducing maintenance cost by fixing a problem when you first notice it will save you money at the end. Resorting to energy efficient fixtures can add to the value of your house. Regular maintenance and updating will go a long way in getting you top dollar when it comes time to sell.
