Find Your Home!

Buyers expect a functional AC system, a non-leaky roof, and new paint.

Many sellers view changing windows, replacing the roof, or even putting in a new air conditioner as something that will reap them a dollar for dollar return when they decide to sell their home.  Certainly these updates will add value when selling but not as much as the investment.

Sometimes maintenance just needs to done.  Sometimes the improvements that were made for your comfort will help with the price.

I routinely tell folks the same thing about a pool....install it if you are going to enjoy it but don't expect a dollar for dollar return when you sell a few years from now.

Think of these as enhancing your quality of living as well as protecting your "investment" in your home.  Besides buyers expect a functional AC system, a non-leaky roof, and new paint!
