What Renovations Have the Best Resale Value?

Improve the resale value of your house with a deckIf you are a “relationship” real estate agent, you will continue to stay in contact with clients, long after the sale. As such, your clients will depend on your expertise for years to come.

One of the issues that may have them turning to you is renovations. You need to be able to guide them on which renovations for their house will pay them the most, when the time comes to sell.

You may want to start a real estate postcard campaign for your clients to advise them on renovations they should consider — from a financial standpoint. If you DO decide to undertake a campaign, you might want to use the following outlines to launch.
