Deck Addition

Remodel Deck to increase home value

Possible Return Of Investment: 65% - 90%

TIP: Don’t neglect the outside of your home! Backyards can add value in a lot of ways – think patios, pools, athletic courts and gardens.   One thing to remember when remodeling is not to go overboard. Try to be consistent in matching the style and quality to the rest of your house (and even neighborhood!) Don’t have the time or money for remodels or additions? No worries! There are smaller, simpler projects that could add value to your home.

  • Basic Repairs
  • Fresh Paint Job
  • New flooring
  • Landscaping
  • Small bathroom enhancements
  • Upgrading lights and technology

Home improvement adds more than just financial value to your home—it also improves your living space. For some people, that’s one of the most important aspects of home remodeling. So whether you are planning to sell soon, or in a couple of years, make sure to enjoy your improvements and be ready for the pay off!
