This might be my shortest real estate Blog post and it must be true that a picture is worth a thousand words. I promise this has not been Photoshopped or altered in anyway. I shot this set on Average White Balance and you can look at the sky and the no parking sign to see this is a blue house. Not only does this hurt the value of the home itself, but can hurt the value of surrounding homes. If you have a pending home improvement project, please give me a call for some information how your improvements may impact the value of your home, both positive and negative. Luckily in cities like Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark and Santa Clarita where there are planned communities; there are regulations that can help neighborhoods have basic conforming standards.
