Thinking of Doing Some Remodeling?

Remodeling change is exciting, no doubt, but if you're thinking of doing some remodeling do your homework and make sure you're goals will be met.  If your goal is to sell within a year or two you may want to run your project by your Realtor for their thoughts and how buyers may look at it.  It could affect them negatively verses positively.
