VLB offers Texas veterans below-market interest rate loans on home improvements.However, many people don’t know which projects recoup the most money when the home is sold. You might be surprised to learn that many of the most popular home improvements, like kitchen and bathroom remodels, don’t measure up to basic maintenance jobs such as exterior paint, landscaping, front porch makeovers, composite siding or a new roof.
Prospective home buyers won’t care that you completely remodeled your kitchen when the carpet is worn, paint is peeling and the yard doesn’t look inviting. Keeping up with basic maintenance such as minor kitchen and bathroom remodels remain among the best investments, often recouping 80-90 percent of their initial cost.
Other high-return projects include steel front doors, wooden decks and replacing wood windows with new energy-efficient windows. Projects that don’t pay off as well include garage additions and conversions, high-end kitchen and bathroom remodels (consider the high cost of plumbing and fixtures in a small area) and sunrooms.

For our Purchasing Clients: we make sure you have access to EVERY home (not just those we list, or the three or four that we think you might like); and we will never pressure you.
For our Selling Clients: we market the heck out of your home; we give you updates on what we've done to sell your property every week along with feedback and activity on the home; we can also lease your property should it fail to sell--seamlessly. Finally, if you're ever unhappy with us, or your circumstances change, you can cancel our agreement.

The holiday season is here! No matter if you celebrate Christmas
"I found out about The Real Estate MarketPlace from Dave Ramsey. I picked you guys because I didn't have to enter into a contract with you. You went above and beyond to satisfy me. You were quick to return phone calls and always showed up on time for appointments. You also gave your opinions and advice, but didn't pressure us to follow the advice. I always though Realtors were sleazy, crooked, money grabbers, but TREMP changed my opinion! I would never use a different Realtor!"
