Top Renovations to Increase Your Home Value:

What are the Top Home Renovations That increase your home value?

A customer asks: "We plan on selling our house in about six months and want to do some renovations to make it more attractive to buyers. What are the top home renovations that pay off when you sell your house?"

Answer: Many homeowners are short-sighted about their renovations without contemplating the long-time ramifications. For Example, What happens when we sell? It's good to strike a balance between things that you personally want to do with your house and what potential buyers find attractive.

Top 7 Home Renovations That Increase your Home Value:

7. Wood decks are higher up on the list. Wood window replacement is midrange and replacing windows is always a good idea. Additionally, replacing with wood gives your house greater aesthetics to attract potential buyers. Wood windows have warmth and a timeless quality.

6. Vinyl window replacement is high range and high class vinyl windows are no longer just the staple of late-night infomercials and junk mail circulars. As the old saying goes, "vinyl is final."

5. Minor kitchen remodel is midrange and it hardly ever pays to do a huge, major gut-out-and-redo-with-granite type of kitchen remodel. Kitchen remodels, as you might guess, can get really expensive, really fast. So, keeping your kitchen remodel costs reasonable will pay off better when it comes time to sell.

4. Foam backed vinyl siding is high range and believe it or not, just like vinyl replacement windows, vinyl siding too is going upscale. Colors are richer and textures more convincing. Foam-backed vinyl siding gives you an extra "R" insulation value point or two.

3. Vinyl Siding is midrange and midrange cost vinyl siding pays off fairly well, too. Because siding quality is trickling down to all levels of siding, you can expect decent value with the mid-level vinyl siding, as well.

2. Wood deck is midrange and wood decking returning value at sale? Personally, this one surprised me, but I'm just reporting the numbers, folks. According to the Cost vs. Value Report 2008, wood decking returns nearly 82% of its cost at sale.

1. Fiber cement siding is upper range and now, fiber-cement siding is something I believe in. Fiber-cement (Hardiplank is one brand name) will put back nearly 87% of its initial cost in your pocket at sale time. Not only that, but the stuff looks fantastic while you still own the house!
