This is what I talk about when I come to see your home.I take a look at your home, the comparable sales around you, and balance that against the updates your home has or does not have. I utilize things such as the most remodeling Cost Value Report.Did you know that window replacement might costs about $15,000, yet you will only see about a 70% return on your investment? Where as by simply adding new fiberglass insulation to the attic or replacing your front door or garage door will bring you the best return for your money?

"Caution Needed for those of you who have are thinking of selling yet have owned your home less than five years."
If you have added a lot of improvements since you purchased you may be in for a shock. So many sellers under estimate the cost and time it will take to sell a home. It can come as a shock. If you are facing a job transfer or specific deadline. The minute you get wind that you may be moving is the time to reach out to us. We live in our homes differently then when we need to market and sell them. This foyer is a great example. The green was dramatic but sucked all the light out of the entrance foyer. Neutralizing it appealed to far more buyers. A fresh coat of paint..( current trending colors) is never a waist of money.
As with any new adventure on the horizon, it is best to have a plan and a good solid road map to follow. That's where we can help. Don't wait to long, March will be here in the blink of an eyelash!
Let me know if you have any questions. I live in the Potomac Shores community and it is no problem for me to swing by your home and talk about your options.
