good post I see many times people spend a lot on items that yield very little in way of value and other than the personal enjoyment they are sad to see the home does not rise in price as they had hoped

Elite Homes,  Little upgrades bring little value.  Even though the home owners are very proud of the improvemnet it's hard to tell them that there is no additional value.
