101 Cost-Effective Ways to Increase The Value of Your Home
101 Cost-Effective Ways to Increase the Value of Your Home by Steve Berges
Description: (From Amazon.com) Every year, millions of Americans spend varying degrees of time and money on home improvements. Which improvements are likely to add the greatest value on resale? What kinds of small, inexpensive projects can really make a difference? How do homeowners get started on the project of their dreams? Real estate expert Steve Berges draws on his more than 25 years of experience to provide homeowners with the advice and guidance they crave, as they mull over their home improvement options and prepare to venture out into the world of building inspectors, subcontractors, deed restrictions, and other thorny issues.
Review: The book was a pretty quick read. It had some really good tips. Most of what was inside is common sense. There were some things I didn't really think about. However, most of what was listed as "the highest priority" were things I was already planning on doing. Overall, a nice simple guide to look at if you are planning on fixing up your house. This is really not something I would buy, but would definitely check out from the library.
Score: 3 out of 5
