FIND YOUR DREAM HOME OR APARTMENT

Unless you live in a trailer park. Then it might be a draw.
By Bill Briggs of SwitchYard Media"
Guess I'm really going blind... I couldn't find those ten remodels.
My philosophical take on these home upgrades or modifications and what it can cost in the long run in trying to recoup at the point of sale, is not as important as the addressing the needs of the people who desire them. Each upgrade or modification speaks mostly to entitlement issues or personal privacy. People shouldn't judge what the upgrade or modification is going to cost, but decide if they have the same issues or privacy needs and be willing to pay the price, and don't look at the home to begin with if they aren't willing to live up to the style of the house. As for sellers, one doesn't build, upgraded, or modify at this level without having a consciousness or awareness of the possibility that others may not want the upgrade or even afford it; or at least they should be aware of this fact. Anything over and above what the average house has, is a liability, and the sellers must concede that is the price of the entitlement or privacy concern, and write it off as a loss if they can't wait for someone with the same issues.
