Getting ready to sell your home? Thinking about exterior updates that will help your return on resale? Although most of these fixes won't necessarily make you more money, they will help your home stand out, and get sold faster!

It's time to sell your home, you've done some major renovations and your house has work done that doesn't have a permit. Can this affect your value, what's the purpose of permits, and what should you do now that you're ready to sell, are there remedies to address this?
