Myrtle Beach Home Improvements with ROI

home repairMyrtle Beach real estate sales have seen great increases in sales and listing activity. Many Myrtle Beach homes for sale have had upgrades to help sell the house. Most people agree that kitchen and bathroom upgrades rank as the top top areas for remodeling.

However, they do not always produce the highest return on investment.

Surprisingly, simply replacing your front door with a metal door adds value and curb appeal to your purchase. New front doors have been producing a very high rate of return over the past 15 years.

Also, when remodeling your kitchen – less may be best. Buyers may not like your style and decide that they will need to remodel it to their liking – same for bathrooms. Keep the upgrades simple – replace cabinet handles and appliances. Consider painting the cabinets and replacing the counter tops.

Your exterior siding is another area that reaps good returns. Again adding curb appeal as the Myrtle Beach weather can cause fading, water stains, and rotting. Painting or replacing with tiles has seen the best return on your investment. – vinyl siding, fiber-cement siding, and foam-backed final have been the most popular choices.

Adding a wood deck you to your home ranks high among return on home renovation dollars spent. One big reason is that decks and patios are a good way to expand living space at a low cost of $8 to $30 per sq. ft.   A new deck adds livable outside area for home owners to enjoy the beautiful Myrtle Beach weather.

Building out your attic into a guest bedroom is another high return home improvement project that creates value to your home and receives a good return on your money. So go ahead and clean out those boxes, pawn the Singer sewing machine, and put the Kodak moments into an album. Make room for a room.
