home improvements

Thanks to Capital One for sponsoring this post.

When it comes to home improvement projects, my favorites are the ones that add true bottom line value to a home.

After all, your house is probably the biggest investment you’ll ever make. As a real estate blogger and journalist, I want to see homeowners increase the value of their property in big ways and in every way possible. That’s true whether they’re planning to sell and looking to increase their asking price, or simply wanting to enjoy their home more while they’re in it.

Some of the smartest home improvements I’ve seen over the years are big and sexy (think glorious new master suite with an extraordinary, spa-like bathroom retreat), but some are more “behind the scenes” and add value to the house in less obvious ways.

I’d love to tell you all about them…
