 “Stop selling. Start helping.” – Zig Ziglar

Real estate agents have the unique opportunity to truly change their customers’ lives through what they sell them. With that being said, it’s important to remember that the more problems you can solve for your clients, the better your results (and their testimonials) will be. It’s not about putting them in a house – it’s about putting them in the right house for them. Being customer focused, not sales focused, is a major key for success.

Home Renovation Projects with the Best ROI

Posted on Nov 23 2016 - 9:44am by Housecall

Many people are interested to know what kind of return on investment they can expect when upgrading certain items in their homes and which items they should prioritize first. This is especially relevant when selling their home or investment property.

When it comes to house sales and particular rooms, the kitchen is often the room that will make or break a sale. Kitchen projects that are budgeted between 6-10 percent of the total home value will see the highest ROI. Putting your finances into kitchen upgrades is a worthwhile endeavor when it comes to optimizing your home for selling purposes.

The top five projects to prioritize when it comes to the best return on investments are: replacing the entry door, installing a new fireplace, remodeling the kitchen, converting the attic into a bedroom, and replacing the exterior siding or cladding.

For an illustrated look at the best projects to focus on when renovating your home, see the below infographic created by Senator Windows.
