HOME IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
Many homeowners launch home improvement projects with the primary objective of increasing the value of the property. While upgrades and remodeling can add significant resale value to a home, there is a line that can be crossed. Building a large addition to a house or making it twice as big as other homes in the neighborhood could be counter-productive. It pays to make improvements or additions consistent with other nearby homes. Luxury features such as a spa or tennis court will probably cost more than they increase the home's value with swimming pools being the least lucrative. Structural repairs, such as fixing cracked foundations, rewiring, replacing the roof or plumbing will cost more than can be recouped when the home is sold.
Moderately priced cosmetic enhancements made immediately before a home's sale actually yield the highest returns. Home shoppers are attracted to well-groomed landscaping and clean and de-cluttered interiors with new, neutral paint.
