Most Profitable Home Renovations
1. Steel Door for Entryway
This renovation heightens the curb appeal of your home and also comes with a low price tag. Although a small project, this minor improvement ranked number one.
2. Garage Door Replacement
Also increasing security, garage door replacements come with a price tag of between $1,500 and $2,800. You can expect to get back around 83 percent of your investment cost.
3. Kitchen Remodels
A major kitchen remodel generally returns around 80 percent of its investment costs at resale.
4. Wood Deck Addition
Ideal for cookout, gatherings, and outdoor conversation, a deck can benefit you both now and when you sell. When potential buyers see a new deck out back, it often brings about thoughts of the activities they can do out back at their new house.
5. Go Energy Efficient
A common find is windows, doors, or an attic that need sealing, which will save you money on your energy bills. If you are really looking to make your house energy friendly, adding an alternate energy source, such as a wind turbine, will not only save you money on energy costs, it will also provide you with tax benefits.
Does your investment property still measure up?
When you bought the property, your return on investment may have been very good; does it still hold true today? Are you still making a fair rate of return on your anual reinvestment into the property? Or might it be time to move your equity into other Real Estate investments that will produce a higher rate of return. Let us help you determine what you are truly getting for a return on your property, Call for an appointment, we would be happy to go over numbers with you.

Seller's tip of the day...Avoid over-pricing
Gradual price drops signal to house hunters that more decreases are to come. Plus, if your home sits on the market long enough, prospective buyers will wonder what’s wrong with it. “In the end, most homes that start overpriced sell at a price lower than a home priced [appropriately] from the start,”. “And the deal happens much faster and without the pain of months trying to sell.”
Today's Buyers tip... Stay under your preapproval limit
As your agent shows you homes, look for properties that cost a little less than the amount you were approved for. While you can technically afford that amount, it’s the ceiling — and it doesn’t account for a broken washer or dryer or any other expenses that arise during homeownership, especially right after you buy. Rather than maxing out that amount, set a lower purchase budget to leave yourself wiggle room for unexpected costs.
