Box 3346, Chicago 111. 60654, enclosing 50c in Coin and Long stamped self addressed envelope. Do you know Correct answer to this multiple Choice question if you do you have a higher a Home improvement i than most Home owners a because most will get it wrong. Q. When a Home owner makes a major improvement to his House he will most Likely increase resale value of House by More than Cost of improvement come out about even recovering Cost of improvement by adding equivalent in resale value get Back around 50 per cent Quot of his costs resale value of House increasing by about half of amount spent on improvements. With possible exception of a couple of improvements no. 3 above is about Best a Homeowner can expect according to a Homeowner loan expert. For most projects a a return of 50 per cent of expenses is considered average a a says William r. Hobson vice president of Gac finance inc. Most householders believe will at least get Back All their costs and Many believe come out ahead financially a a measure of How financial rewards of Home improvements have been oversold. Improvement projects a should be undertaken As an investment in family Comfort and enjoyment not As a profit making venture a Hobson cautions. While ifs True that right kinds of improvements Are Likely to make a House More scalable says Gac finance executive most important consideration for Home owners should be added convenience and pleasure an improvement will provide. Any calculations of costs versus benefits should be made on basis of whether family feels it wants to invest that much in added Comfort convenience or enjoyment a not whether an improvement will a pay for itself in added resale value. Only two improvements in Hobsons experience generally result in a full return of costs if and when a House is sold. They Are Central air conditioning and converting a porch or breezeway into an added room. Some so called improvements can actually diminish resale value of a House or make it More difficult to sell. Keep these important Points in mind Hobson counsels to protect value of a residence i. Don t Over expand of you live in a neighbourhood of three bedroom Homes and feel need for two More bedrooms and a swimming Pool move. One of most common mistakes of Home owners is a love improvement a sinking so much Money into deluxe features or enlargement that investment in House is out of line with property values in immediate neighbourhood. A Market prices of Homes Are determined largely by neighbourhood not individual House a Hobson observes. 2. Don t create an oddity. Remodelling with unusual materials May suit your fancy but turn away buyers. Also make sure that project fits logically into existing floor plan. 3. Keep in scale. Improvements should be in balance with present living space. Done to for example create a Kitchen that belongs in a far More expensive House. 4. Done to violate architecture. All visible additions should follow original style of House. 5. Do a Quality Job. This is essential both in do it yourself projects and in contracted work.
