Highest ROI for home improvements

  • The top spot goes to replacing the front door, with a 96.6% ROI. This simple step actually makes perfect sense considering that your entry makes a big first impression on visitors and potential buyers!
  • Reflecting the current popularity of outdoor living spaces, wood deck additions come in second at 87.4%.
  • Attic bedrooms are another winner. If your home has an unfinished attic space, transforming it into a spare bedroom is a great choice that yields a 84.3% ROI.
  • Garage door replacement takes the 4th spot at 83.7%, and for good reason. The garage door takes up a large portion of the “visual real estate” on most homes, so updating it is a smart decision.
  • Minor kitchen remodels also give homeowners plenty of bang for their buck at 82.7%. Simply updating the appliances, painting the cabinets, or replacing the countertops can do wonders for a dated kitchen.
