Often January finds us setting goals and planning the year ahead. If you are a list person like I am you have a list of projects you’d like to complete in 2010. Maybe some of your projects are hunny do’s and others are serious home improvements. If you are considering home improvement you’ll be interested to know which projects will increase the value of your home the most. The following are a few of the best investments. If you have been wanting a new front exterior door….I have some GREAT news for you! On a midrange home in our area you can recoup you an average of….
111% of the cost of a steel exterior door !
79% of the cost of new windows,
79% of the cost of a new wood deck
76% on a minor kitchen remodel and 73% on a major kitchen remodel.
If you’d like the full cost vs. value report….check it out here. I think is is very good information for all homeowners regardless of whether or not selling is in your plans.
I should also mention that there are some great tax breaks for those who decide to purchase energy efficient doors and windows.
Thanks and hope the first week of 2010 is going well for you. We are off to a great start here at Johnson Home and Land.
