You Get One Shot at a Good First Impression

Do you believe in love at first sight? Most home buyers do! If they don’t like what they see when they pull into your driveway, it’s likely they won’t even make it inside.

If you’re looking to spruce up your curb appeal, consider these updates:

Project Average Job Cost Average ROI
Manufactured Stone Veneer
If you have existing vinyl on your home’s exterior, replacing it with manufactured stone veneer makes the elegance factor go way up.
$7,519 93%
New Garage Doors
Nothing says your home has been well kept like pristine garage doors. Go with something neutral and sleek that matches your home’s exterior.
$1,652 91.5%
Steel Front Door
A fresh front door can make a great first impression on potential home buyers. Feeling a little fun? Paint it a bold, eye-catching color!
$1,335 91%

If you can’t afford a major facelift, that’s okay! There are still ways to boost your curb appeal without a big price tag. Take landscaping for instance. The right upkeep adds instant curb appeal and can offer you as much as double your investment when you sell your home, according to HGTV. Not too shabby!

It’s What’s on the Inside that Counts

Of course, great curb appeal only goes so far. You might get buyers in the door, but the inside of your home is what makes the sale. According to Cost vs. Value, these three interior renovations are high-payoff crowd pleasers.

Project Average Job Cost Average ROI
Attic Insulation
It may not be an update home buyers see as soon as they walk in the front door, but it’s one of the few projects that actually pays even more than the cost.
$1,268 117%
Minor Kitchen Remodel
Want to get a good return on kitchen renovations? Here’s the key: don’t overdo it. Instead of trying to turn your space into a high-end gourmet kitchen, stick to modernizing outdated features like cabinets, counters, appliances and paint colors.
$20,122 83%
Basement Remodel
Basement remodels have a high price tag, but they can pay off when it’s time to sell. Finish out your space with a living area and extra bedroom and bath, and you’ve got a dream mother-in-law or teen suite.
$68,490 70%
