Shall I Remodel My Home?

Which Home Improvement Projects Have the Highest Returns?

Recently, REMODELING Magazine did a survey to rank which home improvement projects needed the most return for their clients and YOUR FRONT DOOR recouped 73% of its cost! What this means is that if you replaced your entry door for around $1,200 you would  see a 73% return on your investment.

Other projects that had a high return on your investment were:

*MINOR KITCHEN REMODEL costing around $19,000 and return about 72.1%

*MAJOR KITCHEN REMODEL costing around $58,000 returns about 65.7%

*GARAGE DOOR REPLACEMENT costing around $1,500 had a 71.9% return on investment

*WOOD DECK ADDITION costing around $10,000 and returning about 70.1%

*VINYL WINDOW REPLACEMENTS costing $11,000 and returning about 68%

*WOOD WINDOW REPLACEMENTS costing $12,000 returns about 67.5%

So, before you decide what to improve or replace, remember that there are a variety of factors to consider in addition to the fiscal costs. For more information, please contact your local contractor and our neighborhood Realtor.
