THESE HOME RENOVATIONS WILL PAY OFF

If you’re planning to do some home improvement projects this year, it’s important to spend your money wisely. What you'll get back on your investment when you eventually sell your home depends on a variety of factors: the value of your house, the value of houses in your immediate neighborhood, how soon you sell after making improvements, and the quality of the project itself. Installing a $10,000 stove in a $200,000 house, for example, usually isn’t a good idea.

“My house generates more energy than it uses,” she said. “Global sustainability is a big, fat, hairy challenge and there are a lot of us working on this problem — including myself.”
