3 Great ROI (Return On Investment) Upgrades to Add Value to Your Home

Smart upgrades can make a big difference in the value of and future sale of your home. Very personalized touches can be expensive and may not add value if they don't appeal to a wide range of people.

Most homeowners will say:

We put $20,000 of work into this home and expect to get that back when we sell.

Unfortunately, that isn't always how it goes. Here are three great project upgrades with ROI that will make homeowners happy:

1. Install a Steel Door

Aside from safe communities, buyers also want safe homes. Steel doors offer a feeling of security and protection and will give you an impressive ROI of 101.8%*

2. Add a Wooden Deck

Wooden decks are ideal for outdoor spaces. They make the home feel larger and typically cost less than brick patios, with an ROI of 80.5%*

3. Improve Curb Appeal

The first areas of a home that buyers see are the driveway, front yard and the front of the house. Add some shrubs or flowers, pressure wash the driveway and repaint the front door to make a lasting impression!

My suggestion with many of these updates is to do them before you intend to sell so you can enjoy them as well! If you have any questions about home updates I would be happy to do free consulting on the resale aspect, just call me 614.638.5817
