Remodeling TipEntry Door
Every Realtor tells home sellers throughout the country: First impressions count.
Replacing your entry door is the least expensive and will give you the biggest return on investment in home maintenance projects. 
In a recent survey of Realtors in 80 cities nationally, a mid-range entry door replacement brings a whopping average national return on investment of 128.9 percent, and in several cities its return is estimated at more than double its cost!

Loan Modifications 
Loan servicers efforts continue to vary widely. Citigroup led the pack by placing 47% of its eligible delinquent borrowers in trial modifications, while Saxon Mortgage, a subsidiary of Morgan Stanley, came in at 46%. Among the other major servicers, JPMorgan Chase put 36% of eligible homeowners in trial modifications, while Wells Fargo put 34% in. Bank of America continued to trail the pack with 19%.
In terms of longer-term assistance, Wells Fargo led the pack among the nation's largest servicers with 2.41% of its eligible delinquent borrowers in permanent modifications. Citi placed 2.1% and Chase 1.68%.
Bank of America, by far the nation's largest servicer, said it has implemented "extraordinary efforts" over the past two months to boost its conversion statistics. The servicer, which had converted only 98 homeowners by the end of November, increased that number to 3,183 a month later. That means only .3% of its eligible homeowners are in permanent modifications.
Asked repeatedly about the laggards during a conference call with reporters, Treasury officials declined to say what measures they would take to force servicers to improve their modification efforts or whether the banks had met their goals.
