All home improvement projects aren't created equally, especially when it comes to resale value. If you want to get the most out of your improvement projects--check out the top projects we think will achieve a better resale value!
1. Replace Your Garage Door
A garage door replacement basically pays for itself, according to statistics. Not only does it add over $3,400 in resale value to your property, but it also can enhance curb appeal, making it easier to market your home and attract future buyers.
2. Install a Steel Front Door
Replacing your existing front door with a steel one can be a great way to add curb appeal, while also making the home safer and more secure - both perks for potential buyers. Consider choosing a steel door with decorative options, like glass paneling, a metal doorstop or paint to match your home's existing shutters or trim.
3. Remodel Your Kitchen A minor kitchen remodel recoups more of its value than a full-scale overhaul does, so try to keep it simple. Upgrade your cabinetry, replace the countertops with quartz or marble, and install new, energy-efficient appliances. Adding tile flooring or a farmhouse-style sink can also increase appeal while upping your home's value.
4. Replace Your Windows Upgrading your windows can add nearly $12,000 in resale value to your home. If you choose tinted or double-paned ones, it might even help you save on future energy costs as well (which could be a big selling-point for budget-conscious buyers).
As a general Dluxuss tip, keep your upgrades sensible and practical, and choose colors, materials, and fittings that will appeal to a broad range of future buyers. If it's too trendy or too custom-fit, it will likely alienate some buyers when you' re ready to sell.
