Make your home investment pay off:


Four home updates every home seller must do
- Minor Bathroom Remodel
- Siding Replacement
- Minor Kitchen Remodel
- Attic Bedroom

Four updates to avoid (unless you plan on living there for a while and the upgrades are things you really really want for YOU):
- Home Office
- Upscale Master Suite
- Family Room Addition
- Upscale kitchen remodel

and four updates for a tight budget.

- Paint - inside and/or out
- Refinish existing hardwood Floors or buy the best quality padding you can afford to put under medium grade carpet
- spiff up your front yard
- update light fixures in kithen, bath and entryway
