What’s The ROI of Your Home Improvement Project?

Every home needs improvements from time to time, including new builds. Indeed, your home is designed to be lived in. Therefore, the constant use of features, passage of feet, and reliance on appliances and other systems lead to a natural effect of wear and tear.

The main difference between a quick patch-up job and a real home improvement project lies in the way you’re planning to use the property. For instance, if you have no intention of moving out, you might be satisfied with an effortless fix that keeps things together for the time being. On the other hand, if you want to move out and sell the property, you’ll start thinking of home improvements in terms of added value. Each modification and each project has to be carefully weighed to figure out whether it is financially worth the expense. Can it increase the value of your home? If so, you should embrace the prospect of a positive return when you sell. But if it doesn’t change the price tag, you might need to rethink your strategy.

Happy Hanukkah! Here’s The Absolute Best Latke Recipe

Happy Hanukkah!

Hanukkah began at sundown on December 2nd last week. Many of us celebrated the start of the holiday by lighting candles for eight days and consuming fried foods. Lots of fried foods. Latkes are deceptively simple. For a basic, classic latke is just potatoes, onions, flour, eggs, and oil. Some of us commemorate the holiday by making latkes each evening until the 10th. And why not? I think that allows plenty of nights to experiment with different ingredients to figure out the perfect latke to your tastes. What I love most is a very herb-heavy latke. Rosemary, Thyme, Dill, Basil. You name it, and if you have it, use it. Fresh herbs add a lot of bite to this classic dish.
