Increasing the Value of Your Home

By  | 

The Greater Lansing Home Builders Association's Spring Home Show is an oasis for people looking for ways to improve their house. Cindy Clone was one of the attendees.

"You're always looking down the line for the resale value to make your home competitive."

According to Mark Voss of The Kitchen Shop, renovating rooms like the kitchen and bathroom will eventually bring more money to your pocket.

"You'll get back close to 100% when you sell within the next five years."

But Forsberg Real Estate Company realtor Mel Manning warns those eager to remodel to consult a professional beforehand.

"You could put too much money into a home that the market won't bear. Therefore you'd be stuck with your product later on."
