An easy-to-follow guide for home owners who want to maximize the value of their most important investment

With anxiety over the stock market running high and home equity loan rates at an alltime low, Americans are investing in their homes like never before. Last year alone, consumers spent a record $123 billion on home building projects. How to Increase the Value of Your Home provides solid answers to questions such as: Is it better to build a downstairs bathroom or to remodel my kitchen? And it provides:

  • Techniques for commanding higher prices and quicker sales--now and 10 years from now
  • Guidance on which renovations to invest in and which ones to avoid
Vicki Lankarge (Hartford, CT) is an authority on protecting the value of houses. She writes on consumer issues for aol.com, CBS Marketwatch, and MSN.com. Dan Nahorney (Hartford, CT) is a journalist, business writer, and magazine editor.
