Spruce Up Your Home This Spring

Spring Projects

With spring comes thoughts of remodeling or renovating a home, especially now with so many homeowners making the decision to stay put instead of moving.  There are some upgrades that will bring the greatest return on investment  (ROI) so it is good to know what projects are worth the price.

It also helps to know which projects bring the greatest cost recovery and which ones just bring homeowners the greatest joy, even though they will not recover the complete cost.  Here is a list of both:

The top five outdoor remodeling projects that bring homeowners the greatest joy:

  • In-ground pool addition
  • Landscape lighting
  • A new patio
  • A new wood deck
  • Outdoor fire feature

The top five outdoor projects that bring the greatest cost recovers:

  • Standard lawn care services
  • Landscape maintenance
  • Overall landscape upgrade
  • Outdoor kitchen
  • New patio

Some interior projects with a high ROI include:

  • Minor or major kitchen remodels
  • Minor or major bathroom remodels
  • New flooring (preferably wood)
  • Upgraded windows or sliding doors

These are only some guidelines to assist future sellers in recovering the most out of any remodeling expenses.  It is unusual to recoup all the money spent in upgrading a home but when choosing a project, it is important to choose one that will bring the biggest return.
