Tweetable moments:

Replacing your front door. I almost always recommend that either it’s replace or re-stained or the hardware is replaced before I have a client of mine put their home on the market as I think it’s the first thing that a buyer sees when they enter a property. – Nancy Braun

Remodel a kitchen. I strongly urge you to take a good look at your kitchen and see if it’s up to date. Kitchens that are outdated are really hard to sell. People are really into kitchens nowadays even if everyone’s eating out. – Nancy Braun

Just to give you an idea of the amount of money you’d spend for a typical size deck, let’s just take a 12 by 16 foot deck. If you were going to pressure wash it, stain it, maybe do a few repairs; for that size deck, you could probably spend $89.00. – Jim Potter
