The home improvement bug seems to have bitten a lot of people here in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. Contractors are busy helping people fix up their homes, even in early winter.
But when it comes to home improvement projects, you do not want to get ahead of yourself or spend unnecessarily. Some of the most expensive projects can turn out to be just that, and they not return any of the money that you put into it.
This is a problem for some that are hoping to increase the value of their homes as they make changes, but often they are going about it the wrong way.
You might be surprised to find that even the smallest, most inexpensive additions can bring back more of the money you spent on them when it comes time to sell. According to My Bank Tracker, you’re able to get more money out of smaller projects. For example, did you know that one of the top projects in terms of getting increased home value in proportion to spending is replacing your front door? It’s a minor change but it can pay off big, and it also delivers a boost in curb appeal. That won’t make your home more valuable, but it can make it easier to sell as well as making it more attractive for you to enjoy while you’re living in it.
