These 4 Home Improvements Offer the Highest ROI

By in Sellers with 0 Comments

When it’s time to sell your home, a few improvements can go a long way toward making it more attractive to buyers and closing the sale quickly. But home improvement projects can be spendy, so it’s important to know which ones have the best return on investment (ROI) — i.e., the best chance to recover as much of your costs as possible.

The infographic below from HGTV lists these as the top four home improvement projects with the highest ROI:

  1. Minor bathroom remodel – 102% ROI.
  2. Upgraded landscaping – 100% ROI.
  3. Minor kitchen remodel – 98.5% ROI.
  4. Exterior improvements – 95.5% ROI.

Some of these projects — especially a bathroom renovation or kitchen remodel — can go a long way toward improving the quality of your everyday life and impressing potential buyers at the same time. So that’s a win-win. See the full infographic below.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
