Top 5 Remodeling Projects Where You Get The Biggest Bang For Your Buck.
When it comes to remodeling your home, there are a lot of different options that you have. Some things have to do with taste and practicality while other things have to do with creating something new and fresh that will impress your visitors.
When it comes to home remodeling and renovations, there are certain things that will get you more bang for your buck when it comes to getting back the money that you put into the remodeling, not only when it comes time to sell but also on things like monthly utility costs.
1. Making your home more energy efficient
When it comes to home remodeling or renovations, most homeowners think about upgrades to certain rooms. However, making your home more energy efficient will usually make a much bigger difference. Making your home more energy efficient involves many things, from adding attic insulation, upgrading the HVAC, updating your water heater and windows, or adding a smart system that controls your thermostat and saves you money on cooling/heating costs. Making your home more energy efficient can lead to homeowners recouping 116% of the cost.
2. Updating the exterior
Most homeowners think about the interior when making home renovations.
But the reality is that if you plan to sell your home, you only get one chance to make a first impression when a buyer pulls up to your home.
That is why making some renovations to your home exterior will not only help sell it faster, but it usually leads to a higher selling price as well.
3. Kitchen remodels
The kitchen is usually the heart of the home. Updating the kitchen is the renovation that usually has the most impact on the home value. If you only have the budget to remodel one room in your home, then the kitchen is the recommended choice because the kitchen is the focal point of the house and a newly remodeled kitchen that fits your needs will make it feel more like home, and it will make it easier to sell later on if you decide to sell your home.
4. Bathroom remodel
Updating your bathroom is the renovation that has the second most impact on home value, especially if your home has a master suite with a master bathroom. Studies have shown that even minor bathroom remodels can provide a 102% return on investment.
5. Garage door replacement
If you have an old garage door, it might be time to replace it. Updating your garage door to a new more modern garage door can not only freshen up the outside curb appeal which can make it easier to sell, but a new garage door can also lead to more energy efficiency which can lower your monthly utility bill.
