Top Home Improvement Projects with the Highest Return on Investment – Robin Glasener

Spring is nearly upon us and if you’ve been considering some home improvements, it’s the perfect time of year to start your projects! Sure, that kitchen from the 1970’s may have been interestingly “retro” when you first purchased your home, but if it’s time for a change, or you’re planning on selling this year, home improvements are a great way to add value and enjoyment to your property, as well as help you to garner top dollar from buyers!

According to the Remodeling 2018 Cost vs. Value Report, below, is a list of some home improvement projects that will bring you the highest return on investment this year:

  • Garage Door Replacement: 103.7% Cost Recouped
  • Manufactured Stone Veneer: 95.7% Cost Recouped
  • Minor Kitchen Remodel (midrange): 88.9% Cost Recouped
  • Wood Deck Addition (midrange): 86.4% Cost Recouped
  • Bathroom Remodel (midrange): 72.6% Cost Recouped
  • Universal Design Bathroom (midrange): 70.5%

A rising category in home improvement is universal design, based on the greater awareness of people with disabilities and the desire to age in place. Universal design means that the features of the home can be used just as easily by the elderly and the disabled as anyone else.
