If you think you might sell your house in the next few years and are thinking of sprucing it up, you may not be sure what projects will return the most on your investment. Here are five that can definitely boost your home's value.
Curb Appeal: Bright flowers, a few shrubs and clean walkways will draw buyers in. A run-down look will have them cruising right by.
Garage Doors: Buyers have been known to balk at a home with a dilapidated garage door. A $500 investment can go a long way.
Upgrade the Kitchen: It's the hub of the house where families gather.
Replace Siding: Good siding can lower your heating and AC costs, and buyers know this.
Remodel the Bathroom: A dream bathroom can add up to $50,000 to the value of your house.
The bottom line is that buyers are looking for a house that seems cared for. A few small investments in strategic places can pay off big-time when you go to sell. (USA Today)
