Every homeowner has projects for their home they hope to undertake. Whether it’s adding a pool, fixing up the yard, or improving the kitchen, there is always something to be done. However, not all projects pay off in the long term value of your home. Some improvement projects are just for your happiness and comfort, and others will help increase the value of your home over time.
Garage Door Replacement
Adding a new garage door may seem like a simple fix for your home, but it can make a huge difference in the appearance and value. Consider that your garage door can take up over 30% of the front of your home, how good or bad it can have a significant impact on the overall appeal your home has and completely dominate the viewers first impression. On average a new garage door with installation costs just under $2000 and you can expect to have a return of almost 92% of that cost in resale.
Adding A Deck Or Patio
While not all materials are created equal, adding a deck or patio to your home can give you a return of up to 75%. When crafted with durable materials like wood and natural stone, decks and patios improve the appearance of your home and add valuable living space.
Appearances are important! As with replacing your garage door, upgrading your landscaping can make a valuable improvement to your homes appeal that goes beyond just the additional value you might add. Adding landscaping doesn’t need to come at a high price either, adding a few flowering plants can help add the pop of color your home needs to attract the right buyer.
Remodeling the Basement
Basements can be a sore spot for many homeowners. When unfinished they can quickly become wasted space, that leaches cold and heat from your home. If you choose to remodel your basement, you can expect a 70% return and have the advantage of extra living space.
Replacing the Roof
While it may not be as visually appealing or immediately as apparent as the other options, replacing your roof is one of the best things you can do for your home. Along with offering a 71% return on the cost, it’s a massive incentive to potential buyers as a quality roof is one of the most critical parts of a home.
