When you provide photos, drawings, mockups, etc., contractors/builders will be able to provide more accurate estimates, have more information to use to make suggestions they think you might like, and the happier you’ll be when the project is finished.
Houzz and Pinterest
Houzz has become a go-to site for home design ideas and trends. It’s like a more organized Pinterest that’s specifically for homes.
You can get ideas from home design photos organized by the room of the house, design style, and geographic region.
As mentioned, Pinterest is also a great place for finding inspiration.
ROI / Cost vs. Value
The annual Cost vs. Value report provides ROI information for 9 regions, including over 100 cities. Resale value and other data is partially supplied by REALTORS®.
Tulsa is in the “West South Central” region of the Cost vs. Value report. (View Tulsa’s 2014 ROI report.) Our region has the lowest Cost with better than average ROI, which makes it 2014’s 2nd-best region for the Cost-Value Ratio.
Analyzing the 2014 Cost vs. Value trends can help you make an informed decision when deciding whether or not to start a project or when choosing between multiple projects.
