Best Home Improvement Ideas for Good ROI

ROI is an important part of your house‘s value- it’s beneficial to know the things you can do that could improve it the most.

  • Replace your front door. Old front doors can be a source of home energy loss, and they can be eyesores as well. Replace your door for a new steel one that’s painted an attractive color.
  • Install a new garage door. This will make for better curb appeal, as well as good ROI.
  • Replace old windows. These are good investments, especially if you get a brand-name instead of an off-brand; If they need replacing in the future they will still be made by the company.
  • Install new siding. There are different kinds that have varying pros and cons. Vinyl is a good choice- it’s not expensive, it’s durable, and it’s easily installed.
  • Add a deck or patio. Be sure to pick a material that best matches your region’s climate.
  • Add in kitchen upgrades. It’s not always the cheapest renovation, but it brings in good ROI. Updated kitchens are a big selling point for buyers. Stainless steel appliances are a good investment, especially if they’re all the same brand.
  • Turn an attic into a bedroom. You’ll have to check your local building codes first, but renovating an attic into a bedroom is usually a good investment.
  • Remodel your basement. Make sure there’s enough light there (artificial or natural) so that it seems even bigger, and generally has a better ambiance.
  • Replace your roof. Make sure you get the right material.
  • Remodel your bathroom. This generally has better ROI than a bathroom addition.
  • Add a fence. Having a fence is a selling point for some people with dogs and kids. However, you may want to steer clear of chain-link varieties.
  • Add in smart technology. If it’s energy efficient, like a programmable smart thermostat, many people will spend more. Which brings us to the next point.
  • Ensure energy efficiency. Many people will pay more for certifications like Energy Star, since they know these will save them money on utilities over time.
  • Plant trees. Probably not what comes to mind, right? Trees (correctly spaced around your house) save you energy costs, prevents erosion, and makes your home seem more attractive.
