The Top Remodeling Projects for Adding Value to Your Home
The start of a new year if often a time in which homeowners begin to think of ways that they can improve the look of their homes, as well as how to make their homes more functional for everyday life. This is especially true for homeowners who may be planning to relocate and want to make their home more appealing to potential buyers.
We recently came across a list of the Top 10 Remodeling Projects for Resale on Bankrate.com. The projects on the list are those that are supposed to help build up a home’s resale value, so if you are thinking about remodeling in the near future, these projects are worthy of your consideration. Below are a few of the top projects and why these projects are great for adding resale value.
Minor Kitchen Remodels – A minor kitchen remodel, which can consist of replacing cabinetry fronts, adding new hardware, adding energy efficient appliances, and replacing outdated countertops among other improvements, can offer upwards of an 85% return on investment.
Bathroom Remodels – Bankrate.com suggests that a mid-scale bathroom remodel, costing around $13,000 can yield about an 85% return on investment, too. This type of project could include improvements such as adding a porcelain-on-steel tub with a ceramic tile surround, a new toilet, ceramic tile flooring, and a solid-surface vanity with double sinks.
Window Replacement – The article lists several types of window replacements, all of which add value to the home. For example, a mid-range window replacement project in which 10 vinyl replacement windows are installed could recoup just over 83%.
