According to Remodeling Magazine's 2019 Cost vs. Value Report, these 5 home improvement projects made the list for having a positive impact on your home's value. Here's five remodeling projects that we can do for you that will surely see a return on investment when it comes time to sell your house.
1. Backyard patio
Even though Summer is officially over, that doesn't stop outdoor additions from topping the list — and we can see why. After all, who wouldn’t want a peaceful backyard oasis where they can spend quality time with friends and family? If you invest in your backyard patio, it will surely return the favor. Georgia homeowners could see a 54 percent return on investment with a backyard patio installation.
Creating the perfect patio is all about infusing a sense of intimacy and relaxation into the space. You can do that by making sure to include a central focal point, much like the outdoor kitchen we did in Roswell (shown above). If outdoor kitchens aren’t your thing, consider installing a fire pit to ground the space. Then, be sure to include lots of comfy seating to round it out.
2. Bathroom Addition
If you’ve been thinking of adding an extra bathroom for a while, now may be the time to take the plunge. According to Zillow, you can expect nearly 60 percent of the total project cost to be added to your home's value.
When you’re adding another bathroom into the mix, your biggest consideration should be the layout. However, since you’re building this room from scratch, you have more freedom to design it as you see fit. Make sure you plan the layout around the needs of the people who will be using the bathroom on a daily basis.
3. Bathroom Remodel
If you don’t have the space or funds to add an entirely new bathroom, you can still benefit from updating up your existing bathrooms. Georgia homeowners can recoup almost 75 percent of the project cost from a midrange bathroom remodel.
When planning a bathroom remodel, the shower should be your focal point. A modern shower can provide you with a luxurious space to start and end each day. Beyond that, updating fixtures such as faucets and lighting can be a fast fix.
4. Deck addition
Like backyard patios, deck additions have been very popular this year. While wood reigns supreme in deck construction, there are many material options when it comes to deck design. Decks assembled from composite materials are known for their longevity have piqued homeowners’ interests as well. Check out this great new deck we recently added to a home in Dunwoody.
One of the huge benefits of adding a deck to your home is the return on investment. It is commonly reported that decks can recover nearly 100% of the cost when the property is sold, and are a great feature to make your home more appealing to buyers.
5. Entry door replacement
Often overlooked as an afterthought, your front door makes a statement. Breathe some new life into your entryway and front yard by replacing your door with a new one. When decorating your entryway, all the standard rules of curb appeal apply. Complement your front door by adding some new new landscaping and even some fresh house numbers.
