Well, to start a ‘green label’ adds an average 9% price premium to the sale price against other comparable homes. And don’t think your home has to be built green to qualify for these ‘green labels.’ Your home may qualify for several green designations without so much as changing your AC filter! See more info on green labels at

Other, more traditional value-added home improvement options include:
--Bathroom remodels (mid-to-luxury upgrade) - typically have the highest return on investment.
--Kitchen remodels - minor kitchen upgrades (hardware, mid-range counter-top, painting/finishing) has the best return on investment as far as kitchens go. Full kitchen reno isn't too far behind but you don't get as much return due tot he hefty price tag associated with this project.
--Roofing - definitely in the top ten best ROI, believe it or not. Properties with new roofs are very attractive to home buyers.

Before you jump into any renovations, it's best to sit down with a Realtor® to find out if it's actually necessary to tackle any of these long and pricey updates. Depending on your location and the market when you're ready to sell, you may find that demand is high enough to comfortably sell your property with little or no renovations. Contact me if you'd like to chat further - and good luck!

Your Realtor should be able to answer this far batter than anyone here could. There are a lot of variables and your lender creates most of them. The lender or your Realtor are the ones to ask for these numbers and it will be based on the property, the loan, closing date, insurance cost, price of the property, taxes, etc. ... more

I can pull the data for you, but only for limited geography like a zip code or smaller city like Miami Beach. If you want to analyze the whole county (or country), you're probably better off calling the National Association of Realtors, who keep that sort of thing handy.

Kevin Cloutier answered:
The better question is, is it worth it to you to stay 6 months and maybe not rent the other 6?

Usually if the rent is right, somebody can use a short term rental. A good candidate is someone looking for a property to buy or having a home built.

Good Luck

I suspect that the rental restrictions aren't going to be the most pressing issue; the buyer financing will probably be your biggest thorn in your side.

Keep in mind that commissions are always negotiable between you and your agent, there are no set standards as it would go against Federal laws; therefore consider interviewing in person a few local agents, or as many as needed, and choose the one you like best and who has the most to offer; choose your agent with care. ... more

I would dispute this with all three credit agencies. Also, send a certified demand letter for them to correct the credit report. These banks have so many files, they have no clue what they are doing.

Good Luck with everything.

I've only seen this provision in contracts for foreclosed properties. If this is what you're referring to, the $100 per diem goes to the seller of the property.
