I met with a two representatives from Lowe's in my office today because they have something I want. Granted Lowe's has a lot of things I want, like a new refrigerator or washer/dryer, but that's besides the point. So, what do I want? As a real estate broker in Fremont, http://www.MyColdwellBankerHome.com, I want home owners who are thinking about selling their home in Fremont to know who I am. I want them to listen to our new streaming real estate agent testimonials and so forth. In short, I want Fremont, Newark and Union City home owners to know that I do a great job when it comes to selling their property.
As a closing aside, it is important to remember that moderately fixing up your home is very smart when it comes to maintaining or increasing your Fremont home values. To find out how Lowe's and a little elbow grease can help--Take a peek at the Cost vs Value Report here. http://www.tricityhome.com/Fremont-Newark-Union-City/Selling-Houses/costvsvalue.html At the time of writing the report, the home values showed an increase in return on investment value mostly found in moderate kitchen remodels and moderate bathroom remodels. In this linked report above, the economy did not "crunch" yet, so you will see the return as over 100% in some areas. You can also view the 2008 report on the public website free to the public. In these latter reports, the economy crashed already. It shows the relationship between the cost of an upgrade and it's estimated value at the resale of real estate. It's always free to the public and good to know, so you can get on the ball when the economy comes back strong.
Maybe you'll see yours truly in the your mail box along next to your local Lowe's sign.
