These four home improvement projects are guaranteed to bring you a good return on your investment:
Doors. Your front door, interior doors, and your garage doors are all items you can replace or update to add some value to your home and get more money out of your home sale than what you put in.
A front door replacement usually costs somewhere between $700 and $5,000. If you were to pay $1,000 for a front door, you should be able to get $1,250 back on your investment.
Interior doors usually cost between $100 and $200, and you can purchase them from, and have them installed by, major home goods stores like Home Depot and Lowe’s.
Replace a wooden garage door with something more modern, like a metal one. Electric garage doors are really popular, so replacing your non-electric door will add both value and curb appeal.
Floors. Many older homes have carpets in various, outdated shades. However, just underneath that is a beautiful hardwood flooring. Tearing up the carpet to highlight your wood floors is a free and easy way to increase your home’s value.
Kitchens. Updating an older kitchen to be more modern will bring you two or three times the value of what you put in.
Bathrooms. A half-bath usually starts at around $3,000 to update. For a full bath, you can go as high as you’d like, but updates usually go for around $10,000 or $15,000.
