All home improvements will add more value to your property. But there are some renovations that will add more value than others. If you are planning to sell your home within the next few years and want to increase the value as much as possible, you need to consider these five improvement projects that will add the most value to your home.
The 5 Most Valuable Home Improvements to Consider
When you want to make a good impression with potential buyers, only the best home improvements will do. Here are a few renovations you should consider that will help increase the overall value of your property.
Addition of a Wood Deck
The majority of renovations you add to your home, that will increase its value the most, are typically done to the exterior of the property. A beautiful, natural wood deck is a great addition to any home, but it is especially good for those that have smaller backyards. That’s because the deck provides more space for families to entertain outdoors. Decks made from all wood materials will yield a higher return than those made from composite materials. So you should keep that in mind while planning.
Replacement of Siding or Vinyl Windows
Damaged and deteriorated siding can easily bring down the value of your home. Updating this is often one of the most affordable renovations. It helps improve the appearance of your home so that if it goes on the market, it will appeal to more interested buyers who are passing by. The addition of low-energy windows will provide similar value to your home while it also helps cut down on your heating and cooling costs.
Luxury Garage Door Replacement
One upgrade that is often overlooked is your garage door. Market research has shown that upgraded garage door models have helped increase property values in some areas. Luxury or upscale garage doors are made from some of the most durable materials, like wood composites and steel. They also include features such as insulation and glazing that help cut down on energy costs.
Kitchen Remodel and Renovations
The kitchen is often the first room that buyers go to when they are interested in a home. While a gourmet kitchen may be the ideal improvement, you don’t have to completely renovate the entire room to add a significant amount of value to your home. Upgrading your appliances to those with modern features is usually the best place to start.
Bathroom Remodel Project
A bathroom remodel project can help add more value to your property, and usually it doesn’t cost as much as renovating your kitchen. Updating the tile, installing new fixtures and improving the lighting can often provide a return of as much as 70% in most locations
