Wow we have to say we were surprised when we checked out Remodeling Magazine’s Cost Vs. Value Report for 2018. Every year when the report is released, we study it to see which projects have the top recoup value in the Grand Rapids area and this year there are two curb appeal renovations that have a return above the initial investment amount! For as many years as we’ve been blogging about this report, we’ve never seen values at 100% or more.
