However, adding more thought to the process itself by not only constructing a good space for living but dignifying the area makes all the difference. In today’s episode, Yusef Alexander talks about the significance of mindfully adding value to real estate projects and being wary of the imbalance - maybe the chase to appreciation is not done right.
