McMansion / Harvard Joint

People who are shopping for homes in a certain neighborhood expect certain amenities in those homes, says Kermit Baker, director of the remodeling futures program at Harvard University's Joint Center for Housing Studies.

"If you're not keeping up with other homes in the neighborhood, you may have home buyers walk away from it. There's a limited number of folks who want to buy assuming they're going to have to do a significant remodeling project".
