  • Adding value to your home

    Be sure to choose home improvement projects carefully, especially if your goal is to increase the value of your home to make it more appealing to prospective buyers. First, finish all basic maintenance before you put money into an extra project, such as adding a marble-tiled bathroom. If your roof is sagging and leaking, it doesn’t matter what your new deluxe bathroom looks like. Then, consider which projects will have the best return-on-investment (ROI).
