Thinking About Remodeling?

Here’s the scoop on resale value!

Many people call me to ask about the types of upgrades they should make to add more value to their homes. Kitchen and bathroom upgrades have the most impact. Although with any upgrades you never recoup the full value. From my experience, talking to contractors and Remodeling Magazine, here is a helpful list of home updating averages for 2017.
