Best Bang for the Buck
First impressions really are everything! As we look ahead to prime remodeling and home buying season in Marietta, Roswell and adjoining neighborhoods, you may be wondering how best to spend money to improve your home, whether it’s for sale, or because you’ve finally saved enough to devote to your home and want the best return on investment (ROI). While many people focus on interior projects, the biggest return on investment comes from fixing up the exterior of your home, or so says the survey by Remodeling magazine and the National Association of Realtors. “It looks like curb appeal does more for you than interior improvements,” says Craig Webb, editor in chief of Remodeling.
Where to spend those hard earned dollars?
As you look at the images below for inspiration, remember that while home remodeling can be expensive, sometimes a simple change like a $1,200 20-gauge steel entry door is a fantastic place to start. With an estimated 101.8% ROI this improvement is indeed a great bang for the buck!
