It is true that home improvements are great investments as these usually are expected to pay off over several years. In fact, some additions such as windows and siding replacement have higher ROI (return of investment) than others, since one of the characteristics that most potential home buyers look for is a cost effective and low maintenance house. For a Twin Cities resident who has been long considering improving your house’s value, an article from kipler.com described some tasks that are considered to be some of the most important home renovation projects:
Improving your home’s curb appeal can really pay off. In fact, exterior projects such as new entry doors, windows and siding are consistently ranked among the most valuable home-improvement projects in Remodeling magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report. That’s because these projects can make your home stand out to potential buyers, improve its appraisal value and help you fetch top dollar if you sell.
Additionally, a study released by the same home improvement magazine found out that equipping your house with fiber cement siding can:
- Acquire more ROI than any other re-siding projects using other siding types such as vinyl siding.
- In fact, fiber cement siding can garner 80 percent pay off to your renovation expenses, especially if high quality and trusted siding materials are considered and used.
