Remodeling your home before you put it on the market is becoming a smart sales tactic; you can usually get the most bang for your buck with some easy renovations.
Some remodeling projects, especially replacements, are particularly worth it. These don’t cost as much money as other projects and that have a positive effect on the value of your home, adding to its curb appeal.
Here are four remodeling projects with a high return on investment:
Installing a steel entry door. Replacing your front door has been a long-time favorite for those who want to boost their home’s value.
Adding a wooden deck. Building a wooden deck onto your home adds living space as well as an area to host outside.
Changing your garage door. Replacing your garage door, whether with a midrange or upscale version, can usually be done at a low initial cost. It has a strong positive effect on curb appeal, returning close to 84 percent of your investment.
Remodeling your attic bedroom. With a national average remodeling cost of $49,438, this project has a cost-to-value ratio of 84.3 percent. Unlike building an addition on your home, remodeling the attic bedroom is an inexpensive way to add living space.
