7 Home Renovations You’ll Get Your Money Back On

Posted: July 28, 2017

We may have year-round pool weather here, but building your dream pool might leave you underwater – they’re usually home reno money pits.

Instead, here are the best fix-ups that almost always increase your home’s value.

You might miss this focal point since, well, it’s hiding in plain sight.

Front Door

A replacement door, or fresh coat of paint on it and new hardware can really refresh the overall vibe of your home.

New Paint

A new coat of paint is like a facelift for your house, changing the appearance from meh to mmmm-hmmm.

For reference: Wood should be re-painted every three to seven years; stucco, five to six.

Anything eco-wise

Replacing appliances with low-water, low-energy options mean you can brag about it in a real estate listing, which makes your home sound up-to-date.

Tankless water heaters, front-loading washing machines, even new insulation in the attic are all smart-money options.

Kitchens

Okay, a gut reno of the whole shebang – including stealing some square footage from a neighboring room – is every home chef’s dream.

Just changing the cabinet doors, countertop and flooring can be enough.

Bathrooms

Kitchens and bathrooms, the old real estate sales maxim goes, are what sell houses.

If you’re flush, go for a gut renovation with luxe surfaces like marble or tile mosaic, as long as the design is clean and classic.

Otherwise, swapping out sink and bath hardware and re-grouting tile are happy options.

French Doors

Want your home to feel more spacious? Try this trick tailor-made for warm climates: Replace windows on a family room, den or dining room with French doors that open onto an outside patio.

Upgrade the outdoor space

Instead of expanding your home’s square footage, take advantage of our beautiful weather by adding an awning to a patio area and create an outdoor living space.
