More and more Americans are choosing to remodel their existing homes instead of moving. It seems like everyone is watching home improvement shows that reveal gorgeous – but costly – renovations. There are a lot of little fixes that can create more value for your home other than a big renovation. Which upgrades will give you the best return on investment, without requiring you to live in a construction zone? Consider these projects:
- Attic Insulation. In New England, adding fiberglass attic insulation is one of the most cost-effective updates you can make to your home. It might not be a visual renovation—but you will see its effect in your utility bills.
- Kitchen Updates. You can increase the value of your kitchen without the cost and headache of a complete remodel. Small updates that will make a big difference include upgrading to energy-efficient appliances or updating countertops, fixtures and hardware throughout the space. For a reasonable budget you can give your kitchen a brand new look and feel!
- Garage Door Replacement. Take advantage of today’s modern technologies and give yourself an upgrade. Often times garage doors will have a 10-year warranty, which makes them a valuable improvement for your home. The added curb appeal doesn’t hurt either!
