The New Year is here and everyone probably has a list for both personal and home improvements. We all know those personal resolutions benefit our health, finances and relationships. Home improvement resolutions have just as much long term impact.
Before taking on such projects choose wisely and get the most bang for your buck. This is easy to do. The 2016 Cost vs Value report is a great place to start when looking at what home improvements will get the most return on your investment (ROI). The report is broken down by region so that you may look at trends in your part of the country and the regions within.
Curb appeal and energy efficiency projects such as adding attic insulation are a trend. Replacement of front entry doors both fiberglass and steel in mid-range homes and garage doors are a smart choice with well over 100% ROI. Nothing is more welcoming and energy efficient than a beautiful up to date front door and stylish looking garage.
According to the report replacement projects like door, window, and siding generated a higher return than full on remodeling projects. Engineered siding such as SmartSide and TrueExterior were added to this year’s project list. Surf the report as there are lots of great insights and information from key trends in your region to high and low value projects and videos.
If in doubt as to style or where to start a professional home stager in your area can assist you with smart home improvement selections suited to your home style and neighborhood market even if you are not selling. Happy New Year!
