How to Increase the Value of Your Home
Renovation to Do: Go Green
“In the last four to five years, there’s been a growing demand for green housing,” says Tom Ferstl, a commercial and residential
real estate appraiser at Ferstl Valuation Services in Little Rock, Arkansas. “Making your home more energy efficient is a
plus—anything that helps keep heat in during the colder months and out during the warmer months will help.”
The changes can be small, such as adding storm doors or a ceiling fan in each room. Or they can be large, like double- or triple-paning your windows.
