There are many renovation projects you can invest in that add significant value to your home. This includes both interior and exterior renovations, but did you know that you’re less likely to recoup your investment in a major kitchen or bathroom remodel than you are to get back what you spend on basic home maintenance such as new siding? So which home improvement projects should you invest in?
Continue reading to learn some of the top home improvement projects that will increase the value of your home and allow you to recoup a majority of your money.
Older single-pane windows are a major turn off for prospective buyers. New energy-efficient windows can save you money on your heating and cooling costs by making your home energy efficient – which is what buyers are looking for. You might also qualify for additional credits from your state or even your utility company.
Outdoor living spaces have become more desirable and making your backyard more appealing by adding a wood deck can increase the value of your home. An inviting outdoor space for relaxing or hosting friends and family is at the top of prospective buyers lists.
Damaged or deteriorating siding can date the look of your home, and not in a charming way. Updating your siding is a very valuable renovation that easily recoups the costs. Appraisers typically look at the structural elements of a home as part of their process and siding usually plays a part in that. Make sure not to neglect the trim – it’s an important factor in making your siding upgrade look its best.
This may not be the most exciting project but replacing your current garage door with an upgraded model will recoup almost 100% of the costs. Newer garage doors are those built with durable materials like steel, wood composites, and aluminum. They also have high-performance additions like energy-saving glazing and insulation.
