Renovating for Resale
I am a big fan (and somewhat of an addict) of www.houzz.com, which is a "platform for home remodeling and design bringing homeowners and home professionals together in a uniquely visual community". Be warned--there are hundreds of thousands of visuals. It is easy to become an addict too.
If I look at some of these renovations through a Realtor's eye focusing on resale value -- no matter how fabulous the "look" -- very often they reflect distinctive personalities, styles and backgrounds. However stunning the look, it may be too individualized.
Love color -- think paint, accessories and items like artwork that are easily swapped out. Neutral colors appeal to most potential buyers. Have questions about a future renovation? Call me to talk about options that will work for you and increase your resale value.
