Kitchens are one of the top-selling points with prospective buyers. All you need is a simple kitchen remodel such as upgraded countertops, new appliances, a new faucet, a fresh coat of paint, or even updated flooring. These minor renovations can help produce as much as an 80% increase in your ROI.
- Bathroom Remodel

And if your current hardwood floors are looking worn, you should consider replacing those as well. Flooring is one of the first things potential buyers notice about the property.

In most homes, garage doors get a lot of wear and tear over the years, leading to issues such as dents and dings. This can detract from the curb appeal of your home. Installing a replacement garage door can do a lot to increase your overall return on investment.

Replacing the roof on your home can lead to as much as a 79% return on investment. Prospective buyers will not find a home that has a roof that has been damaged by water aesthetically pleasing. Nor will they want to throw a lot of their money into repairing or replacing a leaky roof. New roofing can boost the resale value as well as improve the curb appeal.
- Front Door Replacement
The front door is one of the first things people notice about a home so there is a lot to be said about curb appeal when it comes to selling your home.

Sturdy exterior doors with secure locks will give them peace of mind when it comes to home safety.
- Window Replacement
Window replacement can greatly increase your return on investment. Buyers are willing to spend a bit more on a home with newer, energy-efficient windows such as vinyl windows.
