The Most Bang for Your Buck

Real Estate Agent with Dawson Ford Garbee & Co., Realtors, Lynchburg VA

The January issue of Realtor magazine includes the latest data on the value of undertaking various home remodeling projects.  Data is also available at  The article points out that the cost recouped over the past year was lower overall due to lower home values.  I just emailed this information to my client list because I have several who are anticipating a move and are in the process of preparing their homes for sale.

Yes, it is tough for sellers  as there are some nice, new foreclosures out there.  So, you've got to look good and be priced competitively!  Fresh Paint and landscaping give the most bang for your buck around here.

Hi Brenda,

Remodeling's Cost vs Value is a great tool to help your clients. They have an interactive widget you can put right on your website and this is where I send my clients.
