Home Remodeling Projects that Return the Most Money

Thinking About Remodeling your Home

For the second year in a row, Realtors® report that exterior remodeling projects return the most money as a percentage of cost, as detailed in the 2008 Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report.

On a national level wood decks and siding replacements returned more that 80 percent of the project costs upon resale. Other high return improvements include window replacements, kitchen remodels, bathroom remodels and attic-to-bedroom conversions. Least profitable remodels included home offices, sunroom additions and back-up power generators.  For more information go to www.realtor.org to read the article “Curb Appeal Matters Now More Than Ever, Say Realtors®.”
