Either way, if you want to make your money back upon sale, do not remodel to make your house the most expensive in the neighborhood. Although this will certainly attract people to the house, not many will be willing to pay the price. If someone is willing to pay more than what the majority of the houses in the neighborhood are worth, chances are they will just look for a home in a different, more expensive area.
Conversely, contractors may be experiencing more work in the home improvement spectrum. Replacement projects typically outperform remodeling projects anyways due to their relatively low cost (a replacement project is any remodeling project completed under $18,000). One of the best replacement project a homeowner can do for their home is a window and door replacement. According to the Cost vs. Value report, a window and door replacement can return over 70% of the cost, 13% higher than kitchen remodeling's ROI. New windows and doors are considered a valuable replacement projects because there have been numerous advancement in window and door technology, specifically advancements in energy efficiency. This is especially appealing to homeowners since more efficient windows and doors can lower utility bills, which is a huge plus in this market. It might seem obvious that the value of saving money has wide appeal, but it wasn't too long ago that double ovens and hummers were in fashion.
The remodeling business overall is known to be quite a remunerative industry. Business opportunities may come from home sellers who remodel their houses to increase resale value and look more attractive on the market. Also home owners who purchased a house off the market may consider remodels as well in order to make improvements to their homes and make changes to cater to their own unique lifestyles.
Kitchen remodeling can also include new furniture such as breakfast nook tables and chairs, island carts, or barstools. You don't need to spend a small fortune on your kitchen remodeling project. It just needs to appear visually appealing to potential buyers.
Choose a contractor with an established place of business, preferably in your locality. Ask for and check references, and observe each contractor carefully as he or she "sizes up" your home improvement or home remodeling project. If they're not asking many questions, there's no way they can adequately estimate the cost of your remodeling project.
If you are looking to add value to your home, be it to make it more perfect your needs or because you have plans to sell it, then you don't want to invest money in a home remodeling project that has a low return on investment. However, determining what remodeling projects will bring the biggest bang for your buck might be a challenge - especially if you have a limited budget!
