Projects that Boost Home Value
If you are looking to sell your home in the not-too-distant future, you may want to focus your attention on home improvement projects that bring the most bang for the buck. For instance, not only will replacing worn exterior siding with wood or foam-backed vinyl attract more prospective buyers with increased curb appeal, it will increase the value of your home. Other home improvements that carry the potential of recouping up to 75 percent of every dollar spent at the time of resale include window replacement, full bathroom or kitchen remodels, deck additions, and remodeling or finishing previously unfinished basements. Choose neutral colors and natural stains that will appeal to a wide variety of potential buyers.
