Family room addition (80%)

Deck addition (77%)

Master suite (75%)

Window replacement (69%)

Home office (55%)

Other Projects that may increase your home’s value include:

Jacuzzi (4 jets or more); permanent hot tub; in-ground pool; security system; sprinkler system; substantial out buildings; and vaulted ceilings.


These may not add value to your house: above-ground pool; garden pond; and light fixtures.


ALWAYS Remodel with mass appeal in mind.

Use durable, quality materials.

Keep the value of your property within 15 to 20 percent of your neighbors’. You don't want to overprice your home compared to the neighborhood.
