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.

Kitchen and bathroom renovations generally bring a good return and help sell the home faster. Days on market also effects your return on investment.

I was going to mention that kithen and bathrooms are the best values for renovation.  I shake my head everytime I go to a listing and the homeowner did renovation which will never payoff but is expecting it to.

Jennifer - Pools seem to be a problem in terms of return on investment too.

I say - if you're going to sell - make sure what already exists is in great shape - but don't start any new projects.
