I recently moved back to Texas after five years away and landed here in Bryan/College Station …otherwise known as Aggieland.  I was born and raised in West Texas. I grew up with the Southwest Conference and the Big XII. I was not, nor am I, an A&M fan. I was a fan of a rival school. I knew about some of the Texas A&M traditions - though I never knew their origins or even really cared about their significance.

Moving here and living in the area, I have decided that I need to know and care about A&M’s history and traditions (I really don’t want to be run out of town and banned for life from Aggieland. I do have friends and family here.) This place is more than a college town; it is a culture unto itself. People are linked together in their love of maroon

Not all home improvements increase the value of a home. Some are money-makers while others make a home sell faster. Some only add value depending on where the house is located.

Also, there are home improvements that go over well on the coasts, but not in the Midwest. Understanding these differences will help you make the right type of improvement to your home and potentially make more money when it sells.


Improvements That Increase Value

Entryway Door – One of the home improvements that earns a return greater than the cost is a new steel door. It is a relatively low-cost expense with a national average at a little more than $1,000, and it generally recoups 102 percent of the cost.
