Getting the Most Value from Your Home with Exterior Projects that Improve Curb Appeal

204,083 views

Published on

The average U.S. family lives in its home about 12 years. Whether you plan to beat that average and stay in your home a very long time or expect to trade in your current home soon for one with more living space, at some point, you will need to consider the curb appeal of your house to potential buyers.

A good first impression has the ability to increase your house value for sale by 5-10%, according to Bankrate.com, and investing in exterior home improvement projects overall provides the best value for your investment.

Among home improvement projects identified as being in the mid-range for cost, half of the top 10 in cost return are home exterior upgrades. Steel replacement entry doors, are ranked as the 2nd best in ROI for mid-range homes, with 90.7% of the cost recouped, according to the 2017 Cost vs. Value Report by Remodeling Magazine and RealtorMag.com.

The #3 best value home remodeling project is adding manufactured stone veneer, with 89.4% of the cost returned.

Vinyl siding replacement also makes the Top 10 list, offering 76.4% return on investment for mid-range priced projects.

Among higher priced home improvement projects, fiberglass entry doors and vinyl window replacement are high on the list, at 77.8% and 73.9% cost return, respectively.

Adding a grand entrance fiberglass door will provide a 70.1% return on investment.

The addition of some personal touches can go a long way in differentiating your home for potential buyers or make you fall in love with your home again.

Custom glass designs on entry doors and sidelites, for example, are one way to improve curb appeal and differentiate your home. Adding stone accents to a vinyl-sided home, like the manufactured stone that ProVia (www.provia.com) offers, can turn a very ordinary house into a stunner.

Improving functionality also is a factor. Energy-efficient windows not only improve curb appeal, they offer direct savings in energy cost, offering an average return on investment of five years for a 2,600-sq.-ft. home. To get the best value, look for ENERGY STAR certified windows.
