Many home improvement projects will add value to your home or improve its marketability, but rarely on a dollar-for-dollar basis.

Investments to improve the home’s exterior curb appeal can get you the biggest bang for the buck.

A buyer’s first impression of the home, from the outside often influences their opinion of the entire property.

Adding useable square feet of living space can improve the home’s value if, for example, a basement or attic is finished to the same standards as the rest of the home.

Generally speaking, remodeling projects should always be measured by how a prospective buyer will see them and care must be taken not to over improve a home-compared to the surrounding neighborhood.

There are many sources of advice for planned home improvements and a good start is consulting with a professional Realtor who knows the local market.
