Home Renovation Projects for the Best ROI

Are you considering remodeling your home? Whether you’re moving soon or want to make improvements that increase home value, several types of renovations can help you reach your goals. Here are six projects proven to provide the best return on investment.

Kitchen Remodel

Most homebuyers look at the kitchen first and foremost. The amount you can expect to recoup from a kitchen remodel varies depending on the scope of the project, whether you include high-demand features, and the expectations in your neighborhood.

With all this in mind, you can expect an ROI of 7298%. This impressive return makes kitchen remodeling one of the most cost-effective projects you can choose, especially if your existing space is outdated or inefficient.

Bathroom Remodel

The other room that sells a home is the bathroom — especially the main suite. If your current bathroom is dreary, old-fashioned, or rife with plumbing problems, a bathroom remodel is what you need to make your home stand out.

Depending on the extent of the renovation, you can expect to recoup between 67 and 100% of your investment. Working with a designer who understands what most buyers are looking for can help you maximize your return.

Basement Remodel

It’s easy to overlook the basement, but it has great potential for increasing your home’s value before you sell. A basement remodel can return up to 90% of your investment, with the highest ROI possible when converting an unfinished basement into a finished paradise.

Not sure what to do with your basement? You might put in a wine cellar, create a sports bar, build a playroom, or incorporate a home theater — the choice is yours!

Deck or Patio Addition

Many homebuyers these days consider outdoor living essential. If you don’t currently have a backyard deck or patio, adding one could provide up to a 90% return on investment. While you can build a deck or patio as a stand-alone project, you may find it worthwhile to include a deck in your kitchen renovation for al-fresco dining.

Walk-out basement patios are also popular features incorporated into basement renovations.

Siding Replacement

The siding is the first thing potential buyers see when they pull up. If your home’s façade has seen better days, siding replacement is one exterior renovation to prioritize. The estimated return on investment depends on the material you install.

Expect about a 70% return for vinyl and fiber cement and up to 92% ROI for manufactured stone veneer. A kitchen bump-out or room addition is the perfect excuse to replace your siding, though you can also pursue the project independently.

Window Replacement

Are your windows drafty, rotten, or difficult to open? Replacing them could provide a return on investment of 7090%, depending on the window material, operating style, and efficiency rating. New windows can boost curb appeal, reduce heating and cooling costs, increase security, and improve ventilation options.

You may want to replace your windows as part of another home renovation project, such as a home office addition, family room remodel, or even a whole-house renovation.
