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; garden pond; and light fixtures.

You would definitely want to remodel with mass appeal in mind.

Use durable, quality materials.

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