I love reading the paper. I don't care if it makes me look old school. One of the things I look forward to in the Sunday Dallas Morning News is the MetroTex President's Column. Pat Szot is the 2011 President of the MetroTex Association of Realtors. Her column has something for everyone if you are a real estate agent or a homeowner....and that includes most of us. This week's column is about getting the most bang for your remodeling buck. One of her key items to think about....small budget big reward. A recent survey according to the Cost vs. Value Report in Remodeling Magazine showed a kitchen remodel of $100,000 or more brings in a 63% return....while an $18,000 minor kitchen remodel returned about 74%. It is also better to avoid odd or very personal projects. I remember years ago looking for a home with a pool. The home I loved had a big "P" tiled into the bottom of the pool. Not sure what that meant....but it probably meant something much different to me than it did to them.
