Is it worth doing?

This month Realtor Magazine releases its report on Cost vs Value for the nation and identifies what remodelling projects are worth doing. It covers upscale and mid range projects and discusses the actual cost and the return on the investment when selling. What comes out at the top of the list are exterior projects that add to curb value. But what about our local area compared to a national report. However, I always advise customers do not wait till you are selling to do upgrades as you never get everything back. Plan those upgrades early and get some personal benefit from them yourself as well as adding to the value of your home. Like anything when you move in, look at what you want to do, what your home inspector said needed to be done for improvements and maintenance and make a plan. When you have a plan you will often prioritize and get the projects completed. And as we all know plans are flexible as other ideas always come to mind as you live in a home.

The local area report gives a link to Remodeling and gives figures for the Mid Atlantic region. If you want a more specific report you can click through and give your personal details for reports on Philadelphia, Pittsburgh etc.

If you want to know what you should be doing here in Devon, Berwyn or on the Main Line to get your home ready for sale now, give me a call and we will be delighted to stop by and give you our advice.
