A simple example would be that some people believe remodeling a kitchen or adding a wing to their home is the best way to increase value. While these methods are effective, their return on investment is only about 90%-%110, meaning you break even. However, there are a veriety of home services that can significantly increase a homes value with a relatively modest investment. Not the least of which are landscaping and painting. If done properly, Landscaping or Painting can have a 450% return on investment. Even simply pressure washing a house can add up to $10,000 in home value. Small projects can increase value by a few percent and result in surprising gains. Take the median home value in King County, it's over $650,000. By increasing a homes value by just 3%, it would gain $20,000 value. In some rare and extreme cases, landscaping can add over 35% to a homes value and some projects add millions by simply clearing an obstruction which blocked a view.
However, these simple but usefuls bits of knowledge can be found in three minutes on the internet. So having real experience in the home services industry and learning what really works can prove to be invaluable.
