If you are looking to boost the sale price of your Carmel, IN home or if you simply want it to look its best you should look towards home improvement. Not just any home improvement will do, though. Not all projects can offer you return on investment (ROI), but, there are several that could make you your money back, and then some. The following projects were picked from the 2015 Cost vs. Value Report, see if any of these options fit into your budget and your plans for your Carmel, IN home.
Entry Door Replacement. The front door replacement has been listed as the top project for ROI for several years. Since the front door is a key part of your curb appeal, you are likely to impress future buyers.
Manufactured Stone Veneer Exterior. You can add some more curb appeal to your home with stone accents done in manufactured stone. It comes in several colors and costs as much as half of natural stone.
Garage Door Replacement. In addition to the front door, the garage door is one of the most noticeable features of your home. Choose from wood, steel, aluminum, or fiberglass depending on your budget and taste. Although wood doors do require more maintenance they are often the most attractive and will add great curb appeal to your Carmel, IN home.
Wooden Deck Addition. A wood deck can expand your living space with an area to dine and entertain – both of which are attractive to buyers. Add an outdoor fireplace or patio heater so you can use the deck for more months out of the year.
