Smart Home Improvements Maximize Your Dollars
Home remodeling continues to be a favorite American pastime and a $200+ billion dollar a year industry, according to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry (NARI). NARI estimated that more than a million homes undergo major renovation or remodeling each year.
If you want to keep your older home but still crave the amenities of the newer models, remodeling is likely to be in your future, as well. To maximize the benefits of your remodeling dollars, most remodeling experts recommend you concentrate on your kitchen and bathrooms. Not only will these updates make life more comfortable and convenient for you and your family, they typically give you the most return on your investment dollars if you sell your home later.
Older kitchens are often lacking in both cabinet and counter space. Today, you can add cabinets with a space for everything. Pantry cabinets, island work stations, taller wall cabinets, roll-out drawers, spice inserts, built-in microwaves and appliance garages make room for today‚s popular utensils and kitchen appliances.
These are just a few examples of things you can do to update your home. If 2005 is the year for you to turn your house into a dream home and you plan to finance the project, see us about a low-interest home improvement loan or a home equity line of credit.
