Personalizing your home or property and customizing it to your tastes and circumstances is a very large industry in the United States. The words “home improvement” suggest that whatever the project is that it will add value or improve functionality or appearance to your home.
Homeowners will often remodel without considering if the remodel adds value to the property – until they come to sell. Only then do they discover the marketplace may shun their investment for a coy pond, swimming pool or whatever action was taken.
With thousands of outlets and distribution channels, competition for these remodel dollars is intense, and sometimes the vendor will unwittingly say or do just about anything to make a sale.
If you have a home improvement or remodel project you are contemplating, and you are uncertain if the improvement will add value, or will somehow detract, just Ask Monty.
