These improvements that almost pay for themselves in resale value:
- New paint in neutral tones (gray, beige, or a mix of the two) can add actually add thousands to sale value.
- Hardwood floors, though more expensive than carpeting, look more elegant and are less likely to show dirt and wear. Again, a value booster.
- Replacement, energy-efficient, windows can save in heat/AC costs and do a lot to update your home’s appearance.
- A new garage door can boost your home’s value by nearly the entire cost. A steel door that replaces your outdated door boosts your home’s curb appeal.
