The General Consensus

by Christopher Simmons on March 31, 2010

in Location, Location, Location is about the specific home improvements you and your neighbors do to increase your specific property values. But a good place to start is to look at the general consensus on what are the most valuable home improvements.  So, you haven’t looked into it yet, you might want to read this two page article by Bob Villa: The Most Valuable Home Improvements.  But be sure to notice how often Bob points out the need to look at what other people are doing in your own neighborhood:

“The best way to determine the level of home improvement required for a successful sale is to visit the homes around you and study comparables.  Then follow their lead.”

Bob’s right, and that is a big part of what is all about.
