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.
