Whenever one of our clients is considering a major home improvement project, it’s natural to wonder how their efforts might impact the resale value of their home. We often get asked this question and thought it would be interesting to offer some insights.

Many home improvements are indeed good investments because they increase the value of your home which helps you to recoup some of your investment when it’s time to sell.

The projects most likely to pay back their investment cost include: remodeling the kitchen, converting an attic into a bedroom, adding a deck and installing exterior siding and replacement windows.

However, other projects are notoriously poor at return on investment.  Five of the worst home improvement projects when it comes to being an investment that pays back, include: swimming pools, home offices, sun rooms, master suites and garage expansions. Have a look at the infographic below for some interesting stats.

Happy Remodeling!
