The eighth annual Eugene Sustainable Living Show concluded today. Crowds were good and there were lots of new vendors with interesting things. The mood was upbeat and most vendors I talked to were doing good business. I haven’t been for a couple of years, and the overall mood seems more upbeat.
Sustainability was of course a theme, as you might imagine, from the shows name. There were also exhibits for more mainstream products and services as well. There are three home shows per year in Eugene: 1 sustainable, and 2 general shows.
Home improvements definitely add value to your house, but few return dollar for dollar, meaning if you invest a dollar on a project you might only get 75 cents back at resale time. However, owning a house isn’t just about money and if you will enjoy the improvements they still may be a good idea. If you would like to know which projects or improvements increase your house’s value the most, please contact me.
