The book’s title says it all. Bergers, a real estate investor with plenty of experience in “flipping” homes, rates the relative value of home improvements in terms of resale price. Ratings run from one star (weak) to five stars (strong). This subject might have been quite dry, but the author's anecdotes and unpretentious writing style, plus the design of the layout, make it enjoyable. There are sections on overall improvements, indoor and outdoor improvements, electrical, heating & plumbing. ...more

This book was just helpful a medium amount. It did have a lot of good advice and also provided ratings for how much projects could affect the sale price of your home. However, I really wanted to know how installing radiant heat flooring would affect the value of my house. While this book did have a chapter on heated floors it was totally tailored to the author's real estate market in Canada and not helpful to my situation in NC.

The book was a pretty quick read. It had some really good tips. Most of what was inside is common sense. There were some things I didn't really think about. However, most of what was listed as "the highest priority" were things I was already planning on doing. Overall, a nice simple guide to look at if you are planning on fixing up your house. This is really not something I would buy, but would definitely check out from the library.
