DIY Always Saves Money
Just because you’re handy, doesn’t mean you should always do a home improvement project yourself. Things like major roofing projects, some electrical repairs and upgrades, and structural work may need the expertise of a professional. It’s always best to know and admit your limits.
Green Means Expensive
It’s true that some “green” home improvement products can be more expensive than their traditional counterparts, but it’s not always true. Going green—whether it’s converting to solar or using green building practices —may save you money in the long run.
Pools Add Value
If you think adding a pool will boost the value of your home, consider the location. If you live in a warm part of the country, pools may in fact add value. But if you live in the Midwest or on the East Coast, pools can be a more of a liability as they cost a lot to maintain in the winter and some home buyers just don’t want one.
