Putting Your Best Façade Forward

The old adage “don’t judge a book by its cover” doesn’t hold true in home buying, where many buyers purchase a house based on its curb appeal. Sellers thinking of upgrading their homes would do well to focus on exterior remodels, according to the 2007 Cost vs. Value Report. Realtors provide their insight into resale data for the Remodeling Magazine report. In 2007, upscale siding replacement was the most profitable project on the national level, recouping an average 88 percent of costs upon resale. Wood deck additions and wood window replacements returned 85 and 81 percent of costs, respectively. The least profitable projects were a back-up power generator, the addition of a sunroom, and home office remodel.The Cost vs. Value Report compares construction costs with resale values for 29 midrange-upscale remodeling projects in 60 markets across the country.

About Lisa Marchant

I enjoy assisting people in finding their new home or investment property. I want to be their trusted advisor when it comes to learning more about the process of buying, selling and relocating to our area. It is my number one goal to provide exceptional service to everyone I work with. Having lived in Deaver and Cowley Wyoming since childhood I am very knowledgeable about the area and enjoy sharing that knowledge with those making Wyoming their new home. I am a full time real estate agent working for Johnson Home and Land. I joined the staff at Johnson Home and Land in March of 2003, beginning as the office secretary and personal assistant. I got my real estate license in February of 2005. I am a member of the Northwest Wyoming Board of REALTORS, Wyoming Association of REALTORS, the National Association of REALTORS, and locally a board member of the Lovell Chamber of Commerce.
