Palos Verdes and South Bay Los Angeles Real Estate Home Improvements

Home Improvements can significantly increase the market value of your home, but it is important to understand the ratio of increased home value versus the cost of the improvement. Not all home improvements yield the same results in recovering their cost upon the sale of the property. Kitchen upgrades, followed as a close second by bathroom upgrades generally have the best financial returns. If you visit by website at http://www.maureenmegowan.com/Nav.aspx/Page=/PageManager/Default.aspx/PageID=1584411%20 you can learn how each type of home improvement ranks as far as its return on investment. I also have several before and after pictures of effective home improvements, as well as extensive advice on hiring a contractor for your home improvement project.
