In talking with contractors, landscapers and interior designers, they've all noted a huge uptick in work and activity. It seems that while most people were quarantined indoors through most of March and April, they decided to tackle all the projects they could during this unique "break" in work and life.
With nearly every buyer and seller I work with, I get the question: "What are the best upgrades that add value?" This is always a great opportunity for me to educate clients about what really is most appealing to future homebuyers. Additionally, realtor.com recently put together a cost vs. value report to really break down what you can expect to recoup in every project. For reference, percentage of project cost recouped that range between about 60% and 100% are considered "good".
