Five top ‘money-back’ upgrades

When it comes to the bottom line, all home remodeling jobs are not created equal. Before investing in home improvement, take note of the five top cost-effective exterior projects that will return more money when it comes time to sell. Remodeling magazine’s 2016 Cost vs. Value Report compares the average cost of 35 home-improvement projects to the value they return upon resale of a home. Exterior improvement projects are likely to provide higher rates of return than interior remodels, according to the report. Looking at the national averages for midrange rather than more costly upgrades, exterior projects such as door, window or siding replacement account for seven of the top 10 high-ROI projects, returning more than 78 percent of the initial investment.
