As a Main Line Realtor®, I am often asked not just about buying or selling a home, but about the best way to add value to a home.

And I always tell clients not to renovate to the point that their house is the most expensive one in the neighborhood and to consider what joy they will gain from a particular renovation that might make it worthwhile despite the monetary return. If they have always wanted a back porch, why not add one unless they will be moving in the very near future.
