From Thanksgiving to New Year's Day, we're all busy.

We get it – the holidays can be a hectic and stressful time: with family coming for visits, shopping to get done, cookies to be baked, Santas to be visited,  kids' plays to be attended, Holiday cheer to be manufactured and delivered, decorations to be put up...

One of the things that makes the Oldfather Group one of the top real estate firms in Delaware and Maryland's coastal region is unquestionably the quality of people who choose to work for us and with us on a daily basis.

If you're like most of us, your home is one of the most valuable things that you own. So it stands to reason that taking care of it over the years is of utmost importance.

And that leads us to home improvements, which probably anyone who has ever owned a home has undertaken. Some are minor, like replacing wallpaper with a fresh coat of paint or ripping up your carpeting to expose or lay beautiful new hardware floors.

Others are more extensive, of course, and can range from upgrading your kitchen or bathroom with new fixtures to even something as major as adding a couple of new rooms to your home.

But did you know that some home improvements can significantly add value to your home, while others can be a bit of a "money pit?"

Today, we're going

Delaware and Maryland's coastal communities are known locally for many things, but most people who live outside of the area know the region for primarily just one - and that's the beach, of course.

And with good reason, tourists flock to Ocean City, Maryland, and to Delaware's top coastal communities every summer by the millions, enjoying the best that the area has to offer.
