For more than half of Americans, the main reason to buy a home is simply because they want a place to call their own, according to the “Homebuyer Insight Report” recently released by Bank of America.

Addison was very helpful in informing us about which updates had a high impact in our ability to sell our home for the best return and which we shouldn't worry about spending money on. After a few minor changes, we got 3 offers over ask and couldn't be happier! "
