Help with Home Remodeling and Renovating Your Home

Are you hoping to save money by remodeling yourself?

Are you wondering what remodeling jobs will add value to your home?

There is good news in Novi, Michigan: the summer-like temperatures are here to stay at least for the weekend. While we may be enjoying the occasional fall shower, temperatures will be staying in the high 70s. This weekend will be the perfect weekend to head out to the Novi Home Remodeling Show. 

Both remodeling and renovating have the potential to add value to your home. Today, we want to share with you some of the top places to renovate or remodel that will get you the return on your investment. With that knowledge you can head into the Novi Home Remodeling Show ready to learn how.

Remodeling and Renovating 

Last month, we shared the article, Do Renovations Increase the Value of Your Home?, that questioned whether or not renovations actually increase the value of your home. What we learned is that renovating does work as long as it is in the right place. 

The biggest winners when it comes to return on your investment are outside your home. According to the Cost vs. Value report by Remodeling Magazine, the top four places to receive a return on your investment are,

  • Entry Door Replacement
  • Fiber Cement Siding
  • Wood Deck Addition
  • Garage Door Replacement

The report just proved what realtors have been saying for a while, curb appeal goes a long way. First impressions are critical, especially when you are considering selling your home. 

The fifth highest remodeling job was minor kitchen remodeling. That's great news, because the cost to renovate isn't going to break the bank. The kind of remodeling jobs we are talking about here are changing out counter tops, adding new appliances and replacing the cabinet fronts. 

The last couple of remodeling jobs that are worth taking notice are finishing off the basement and adding an attic bedroom. These two will cost more than the previous jobs, but having that extra space may be what the buyers need to make that offer.
