Invest in your Nest
Add Style, Comfort, and Value to your HomeBook - 2006
Part do-it-yourself handbook, part investment guide, and part self-help manual, Invest in Your Nest is a unique approach to home improvement that speaks directly to the growing number of women who are investing in real estate.
From Barbara K.--widely recognized as today's home repairs expert for women--comes an empowering book that is the first to explore the various ways women can add both beauty and comfort to their homes and increase property value. Now this hugely successful entrepreneur shares her own experiences--as a professional contractor and a single woman--buying, renovating, building, and selling homes. Room by room, she examines the value to both homeowner and potential buyer of a variety of homeimprovement projects, whether they are Do-It-Yourself (installing decorative molding) or Call-in-the-Pros (what you should know before calling the contractor). With this book's practical advice, women will gain the confidence and the ability to get the most from their homes--whether they plan to stay put or sell.
