7 Remodeling Ideas That Give You The Best Bang For The Buck
By all reports, the real estate market appears to be on a rebound. No telling how fast or how robust the recovery will be, yet it's good news just the same. This means a couple of things. If you are in the market to buy a new home, the values will most likely keep rising, so buying sooner may get you a better deal. Also, if you already own a home and plan on staying put, upgrades you do will only continue to add to your ultimate value. And if you are looking to sell your home, there are some upgrades that will be better at getting you the best return on your investment. Every year, Remodeling Magazine prints a Cost vs. Value report which breaks down the variety of home improvements that rate highest in return. If you go to their website, you can zero in on your actual state and city...or one close to you. Here in Vermont, Burlington happens to be the only city rated, but it still gives a good reference point.
The seven remodeling projects with the best return are highlighted in a very good article on HouseLogic's site and are as follows:
1. High quality siding 2. New front door 3. Bedroom upgrades 4. Kitchen improvements 5. Garage door 6. Deck 7. Vinyl siding
