Projects that may increase your home’s value include: Jacuzzi (4 jets or more); permanent hot tub; in-ground pool; security system; sprinkler system; substantial out buildings; and vaulted ceilings.

These may not add value to your house: above-ground pool; ceiling fans (depending on your area climate); garden pond; and light fixtures.

* Remodel with mass appeal in mind.

Use durable, quality materials.

Keep the value of your property within 15 to 20 percent of your neighbors’.
