Here are some quick Do's and Don'ts of Home Improvements, that might just save you some money! Home owners typically wonder what improves are good and which ones have low returns.

1. Curb appeal and over all visual appeal of the interior of the home. Give the home a fresh coat of new paint throughout the home--inside or out and if using different colors, make sure the colors are more neutral and visually friendly. Paint outside trim a new and matching color to existing siding color, if you don't the money to completely repaint the outside of the home.
2. Ungrade your bathrooms with new style ceramic tile, lighting and mirrors, if older than 10 years. Get rid of pinkj, green and burnt orange tubs and toilets. You can easily replace vanities with one from Home Depot, with a new sink, for a very small investment.
3. General Yard Appeal- Cut back all shrubs and vegetation. If there are windows in the front of the home make sure they can be seen out of from the house and very visabile from the curb. Add new landscaping bark and borders. Note: After putting down a vegation mat over the ground, your bark or rocks need to be at least 3-4 inches deep to really be able to keep plants and grass from growing through. Clean out back yards, clean away old shrubs, plant new ones.
