Renovations and returns Part I

I've just finished reading an article that originated with the Wall Street Journal.  To summarize, the article claims that the absolute hottest renovation trend is an indoor or outdoor sauna.  Now perhaps in other regions of the country, this may very well be the case; however, in the North Pocono Lake region, I can assure you that you're wasting your money. 
Now, if this is your "Forever" home, have no intention of moving anytime soon and of course enjoy sweating like Olympic swine....by all means, pull $15-$20K out of your portfolio and steam away.  If however,  you're counting your renovation pennies carefully while keeping one eye on the market, I can suggest a number of home improvements that will offer you a generous return on your "hard_earned" investment.
Stay-Tuned for Part II
