Upgrade The Way You See The World
When homeowners begin to consider the possibility of placing their current home on the market, a remodel is usually the first thing that is considered. Generally, one would start to look at the kitchen and the bathroom to make sure they hold a modern look with many convenient functions and layouts. It is without doubt that a current renovation in some areas might be necessary, however, it is certainly a wise investment to consider updating the siding, windows, and doors as they tend to hold their value better generating a larger return on your invested dollars over a renovation or remodel of key rooms.
Upgrade with Remodeling Projects
Seeking to discover which remodeling projects retain their value best when a home owner is ready to sell; Remodeling Magazine surveyed 3,000 various real estate agents and firms. The answers were not all that surprising; as the top four remodeling projects that retain their value for resale pertained to Siding, Doors, and Windows. Focusing on the figures from the East North Central 2020 Averages, which pertain to Missouri and adjoining states, the average percentage of value held when broken down into categories are: Grand Entrance at 51%, Master Suite at 53%, Bathroom at 57%, Roofing at 59%, Kitchen at 60%, Entry Door at 63%, Deck at 65%, Windows at 68%, Garage Door at 79%, and Siding averages at 80%.
It is worth mentioning, that a trending theme with siding that holds about 88% of its value at the resale time in the Midwest is Manufactured Stone. This siding technique is basically achieved by using manufactured stone siding on the bottom third of the front-facing façade and outlining the entrance.
