Interior Projects that Offer Return on Investments

Interior Projects that Offer Return on Investments

When deciding on what home improvement projects you should invest in, look toward your neighbors! You should only expect to invest in improvements that will help your home reach its maximum level of potential. If you spend too much on renovations, you could price yourself out of the neighborhood and see little to no return on your investment. Also, compare your home to others in the area. If you have one bathroom and most other homes have two, a good investment would be in another bathroom. Use the homes in your area to judge your next project. Here are some ideas to get you started!

Kitchens

Kitchens are the best area of your home to invest money in. You will see a great return on investment in this area, but you should be careful not to overspend for your neighborhood. Before getting started, be sure to talk to your Realtor. They will be able to tell you if a kitchen remodel will help add value to your home. If the price is right, you can expect to see almost 100% return on your investment.

Bathrooms

Next to kitchens, bathrooms are the best option for remodeling. Bathrooms have a high return on investment since they cost less than kitchens, but more than most other rooms. The costs to remodel a bathroom vary from one extreme to another. Simple touch ups and replacing small fixtures, like the faucet, are definite improvements. Full bathroom renovations can start at a couple thousand dollars and quickly escalate beyond $20,000. When deciding to remodel the bathroom, be cautious that you don’t price yourself out of the neighborhood or sabotage your return on investment. Courtesy of About.com

Exterior Projects that Offer Return On Investments

The exterior of your home is the first thing people see when they drive past. Whether selling your house or doing minor improvements, curb appeal is a major feature that should be considered during these projects. First impressions are everything when it comes to your home. Here are a few ideas for improving your landscape and gaining the attention of all who pass by.

ROI The exterior of your home will yeild a high return on investment since it is the first thing buyers see. This allows you to get more traffic through your home which could mean more offers.

Green Healthy Lawn

A dead lawn stands out like sore thumb. If your grass is beyond saving, you can consider having the yard re-sodded which provides immediate results. Once the grass is green again, make sure the edges are clean and straight. This makes the lawn look well manicured.

Nice Landscaping

 

Don’t be afraid to use a little color in your landscape. Colorful annuals draw the eye in to the house from the street. Once the attention is caught, some larger plants are excellent for covering up the foundation. A house without any landscaping appears to be uninviting.

 

Touch of Paint A

Peeling paint on the entry door screams “go away”! Make sure your front door has a fresh coat of paint to ensure that your guests feel invited into your home. Any trim around the house should be painted crisp complementary colors. The paint on the outside should be inviting and yet personal. Again, this is your chance to make a first impression!
