Recently I was contacted by eLocal to join their Panel of Experts for an ongoing series that addresses questions from consumers with respect to home improvements etc.  The series is done in the form of a "blog-off" whereby each expert chimes in with their answer to the question at hand.
In Blog-Off #4, the burning question was 'What Renovations Have the Best Resale Value?'  You can read what we all had to say here: eLocal Blog-Off #4.  As well, eLocal has compiled all of the answers to that question right here in a summary format: Prevailing Thoughts From Our Experts.

It's the start of a brand new year.  Most likely, you have a list of personal items that you want to accomplish in the next 11 months like many others.  What about your home?  Have you prepared a 'to-do' list of things you've been meaning to do?  If you're planning on selling this year, you may want to make some New Years' resolutions for your home.

The REALTORS® Association of Hamilton-Burlington recently predicted a Seller's market for 2008.  This is good news if you are planning on selling your home this year.  If you are ready to take the plunge, here are a few tips to start preparing your home for sale:
