I have been continually impressed with Home Depot. They have classes that are helpful.
Kitchen always holds the best return. If your place is less than 1.75 baths adding will yield good return.
Keep in mind you are in one of the hottest markets Seattle has ever seen. Sometimes fixing is not worth the time.
I'm sounding like a broken record but you are making money every day you hold on.
My Best, Stephen Webber
