Top 5 best ROI remodel projects
If you have been thinking about doing some upgrades to bring top dollar to your home, Houselogic and MSN have some great ideas. The trends from 2013 to 2014 seem to be on track to stay the same…
As I see it when I have buyers out looking, mid-range to upscale kitchens seem to do the trick, and getting energy efficient upgrades is always helpful! From updating your front door to getting your windows updated, some of the most common upgrades that bring you the best return on your investment are not what people used to splurge on. Steer away from the updating of the bathroom. Steer away from adding dated sunroom or Florida room. Give your future buyers what they want- energy efficiency, comfort and a little taste of style.
I love how this guys phrases it in an MSN article about 10 most popular upgrades that bring ROI: “Replacement projects are really strong because they’re cheap and they make the house look good immediately. If you get new windows, new siding and replace the front door, the house looks great. It sells faster and for more money,” Alfano says. Yeah, it makes the house look good, and will bring you top dollar. If you can get siding done, do it.
Houselogic put together these Long-term ROI stats for the consumer earlier this year. Take a look at the numero uno! A new entry door. Yes. Get the curb appeal updated, while gives more insulation to the home. It is like a two-fer!
