Top 10 Home Improvement Projects Which Add Value to Your Andover Home

cost vs value of your Andover Home At the top of the list of  real estate questions I’m most frequently asked  is which home improvement projects add the most value to a home.  Each year real estate professionals and home building contractors tackle this question by analyzing  market data across the country.  This is never an easy question to answer because the data varies from region to region as well as from city to city and style and price of the home. Never the less, the information in the COST VS VALUE REPORT is a great resource and includes a wealth of information to help you increase the value of your Andover home.

Some of the top remodeling projects which add value to your home include:

  • Entry door replacement
  • Siding replacement
  • Garage door replacement
  • Deck addition or replacement
  • Window replacement
  • Roof replacement
  • Minor bath and kitchen remodels
  • Bathroom addition
  • Roof replacement
  • Basement remodel

Fall can be a great time to move

Fall can be a great time to moveIf you think spring is the best time of year to sell a home think again.  While spring is indeed a busy season for real estate sales, fall can be a great season for home buyers and sellers.  Sellers, your homes have as much curb appeal with autumn leaves, fall flowers and lush green lawns as they do with spring and summer flowers. Buyers, you can avoid competing with other buyers desperate to move before the next school year starts.  Who wants to move on the hottest day of the year, anyway?  People move for many reasons–new jobs, new babies, retirement, new marriages, changes in health and family and the like.  Bottom line?–the best time to move is when it makes sense for your personal situation.  There are always opportunities for home buyers and sellers.  When is your best time to move?
