As fall approaches, the real estate market slows down and I begin to think; don’t wait for spring… do it now!

Studies show that on resale, a well maintained home fetches top dollar. Newer windows, furnace, kitchens and baths are high on the list when buyers come knocking.

Although granite kitchen counters add a “WOW” factor, fresh neutral paint, sanded floors, and new siding return 96% of invested value same as the kitchen remodel.

When it comes to home renovations: plan wisely! You deserve a second opinion. Call for my thoughts and advice before you begin.
