Running your own business and becoming a Realtor is as simple as getting your real estate license. NOT! Getting your real estate license in Texas is only the beginning. While the license allows you a multitude of freedoms to be your own boss, choose the hours your work and determine your own destiny but being a Realtor takes more. First – find a Broker that is a member of the National Association of Realtors. Choose a broker that has years of experience and is willing to help their agents, provides support and education and has the reputation you want your name tied to.

- Simpler, lower cost projects tend to return greater value. The national average cost for a steel door replacement was $1,230, for example. That’s the least expensive project on the list, and it ranks highest on the payback scale, returning 101.80 percent nationally on average. In fact, in 43 of the 102 markets surveyed, Realtors said the new door would recoup more than 100 percent of its cost. Other projects expected to top 100 percent payback in multiple markets: the midrange wood window replacement, and the minor kitchen remodel. Notice a pattern? With the exception of the kitchen job, they’re all replacement projects. In general, replacements cost less and provide a bigger payback than remodels or additions.
- First impressions are important The replacements that offer the greatest payback are the ones that are most obvious to buyers when they first view a house in person or online, such as new door or garage door. Siding replacement also provides great value at resale–particularly this year’s one new project, manufactured stone veneer, which is expected to recoup 92.2 percent of its cost nationally on average.
- Kitchens still offer the most remodeling bang for the buck. The only remodeling job breaking into the top 10 in terms of payback is the minor kitchen remodel with a national average cost of $19,226 and a national average payback of 79.3 percent.
- Expect bigger payoffs in the West. In addition to reporting national averages, Remodeling magazine breaks down Cost vs. Value data by Census region. In the Pacific region–which includes Alaska, California, Hawaii, Oregon, and Washington–six projects are expected to top 100 percent payback. The nearest competitor is the East South Central region–Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee–where two projects are expected to top 100 percent payback.
- Entry door replacement (101.8%)
- Manufactured stone veneer (92.2%)
- Garage door replacement (88.5%)
- Siding replacement, fiber cement (84.3%)
- Garage door replacement (82.5%)- upscale
