I have spoken to a handful of general contractors in the South Bay since the beginning of the year, and it seems like business is picking up. They all have jobs lined up over the next several weeks for major remodels. Some clients have gutted recently purchased property. Others are staying put in their current residences and giving their homes a face lift.
If you are thinking of updating your home to prepare to sell, remember that you won’t get a 100% return on your remodeling costs. Exterior renovations still seem to go the furthest. Curb appeal and first impressions are crucial when selling your home.
