Guest Speaker Darryl Rose of Get Dwell on The Annual Cost vs. Value Report by the NAR and Remodeling Magazine. The report has become the industry benchmark when examining the the value of investing in the improvement of a home when it comes time to sell. It provides the numbers you need on how much it really costs for a pro to do a typical remodeling project, as well as how much that project can be expected to bring in resale value. It examines variations in what it costs for a professional to do different remodeling projects in different markets across the nation. The Chicago area is a local market that is specifically examined. Results are then compared with findings from a survey of real estate professionals who are asked to estimate the additional value that those remodeling projects bring to a house if the home is sold within a year of when the remodeling project occurred.
