It is not uncommon to choose home improvement projects based on personal satisfaction and family comfort, but it is also wise to consider those that will add value to your home and thus result in a good return on investment. The same holds true with an exterior home improvement. In fact, it may be even more important because marketability is greatly affected by curb appeal.
When you put your home on the market, in order to fetch the highest price you need lots of exposure and thus plenty of interested buyers. It is not uncommon for buyers to drive around neighbourhoods in search of a home before looking online at features or meeting with a real estate agent. They are looking for a home that looks good from the street first – in other words, its curb appeal. So, what exterior home improvement will enhance the look of your home?
One of the best options is to replace the siding, particularly if it is detracting from the beauty of your home. Having vinyl or aluminum siding installed can give you an amazing return on investment because it can completely transform the look of your home. Your home will look newer and more inviting, and buyers recognize the benefits of lower maintenance costs, better protection for the home, and ease of maintenance. Another exterior home improvement to consider is seamless eavestroughs with a leaf guard system. This also improves the look of the home. If the soffit and fascia is unappealing, these should also be upgraded.
