Looking for ways to increase your homes resale value or improve your real estate investment? The 2015 Texas Remodel Valuation Report, that was released earlier this year, by the Texas Association of REALTORS®, explains the remodeling projects that improve a home’s outward appearance often recouped more than the total project cost.
According to the report, the most profitable remodeling projects were dominated by those that boosted a home’s curb appeal. Steel entry door and garage door replacements ranked among the top five projects in most markets, recouping up to 113.2 percent and 107.6 percent of recoup costs, respectively. Siding, roofing and window replacements – and a new project, stone veneer accents – also frequently yielded higher returns than costs.
