Home Improvements That Are Worth The Investment
HGTV created a list of the top home improvements that pay off. The Gabbard Team wanted to share the Top 5 with you.
A minor (not major) bathroom remodel will get you the highest return on your investment. This type of project entails replacing the tub, toilet, sink, vanity and fixtures. Also, update the floors and tile. The average cost for such a project is around $10,000. Return at sale is 102%
Landscaping should get you about a 100% return on your investment. Best practice would be to create a customized design for the yard. Many of your local garden centers have design services. Some of them are free! One recommendation when sprucing up the yard is to choose one color for the front of the home but with varying heights of plants. Spruce up the front walkway and front porch as well. Curb appeal is extremely important if you decide to sell your home.
A minor kitchen remodel can cost around $15,000. Return on investment is 98.5% HGTV defines a minor remodel as refacing the kitchen cabinets and drawers and purchasing new stove, cook top, oven and fixtures. Recessed lighting over work areas is also a great idea.
Improvements to the exterior of your home will generally get you a 95.5% return on your investment. Exterior home projects are things such as replacing vinyl siding and windows or painting the home.This last home improvement is one that varies in its return on investment.
Adding a bedroom in the attic can cost around $40,000 and get you a 93.5% return. However, that amount depends highly on what area of the country you live in. An attic bedroom gets a larger return on the East or West Coasts then it does here in the Midwest. If you are still curious, this remodel includes a bedroom, bath with a shower, closet and windows.
