Home Remodeling for the Best ROI – Milford, MA

15 Nov 2013

No matter how long you have lived in your home, there is probably something you want to change about it; most likely you want to add more space. You could do this with an expensive addition, but most homeowners don’t want to start that kind of project in the winter.

As far as home value goes, there are some home remodeling projects that will pay off more in the long run than others. When you decide, eventually, to sell your home, or perhaps when you want a home equity loan, there are remodeling projects that will increase the value of your home more than others. These are the projects you should focus on.

Even if you may not think you will be selling any time soon, it doesn't hurt to keep your home's resale value in mind for the future. When planning home improvements, here are a few things to consider.

Firstly, there is no home remodeling projects that will get you 100% return, but some projects will give you a higher return than others.

You will get the highest return on investment for replacing entry doors and remodeling the basement in your home.

Also keep in mind that lower to mid-range remodeling projects will give you a higher return on investment than those upscale, very expensive remodeling projects.

Every home is different, and every family’s needs are different also. While there is not a huge ROI on sunrooms, if most of the homes around you have one, you would be at a disadvantage when you went to sell.

If you are wondering which home improvement project would best affect your home’s value, talk to a realtor. They can do a comparison of like homes in your town and tell you which project to start first. If you are interested in a basement remodel, or replacing your home’s exterior doors, contact Manzola Carpentry in Milford.

Basement Remodels Add Living Space to Your Home – Milford, MA

If you are looking for ways to add space, comfort and value to your home, basement remodeling is a solution that promises high ROI. In fact, according to the 2013 Cost vs. Value Report in Remodeling Magazine, basement remodels are still one of the top remodeling projects and they typically consist of about a third of the entire home's available space. A full basement remodel will give you a 70% ROI.

But few people spend the money on a basement remodel just to turn around and sell their home. Most remodel the basement to enjoy for years, while keeping resale value in mind. Remodeling the basement, whether it’s for a “man cave," laundry room, playroom, home office, or TV room, does not just mean throwing down carpet and putting up drywall. Adding useable space to expand your living area and increase home value means creating design and atmosphere.

While the housing market is picking up, and home prices are rising, you still have to buy a home, and…home prices are still rising. So often, basement finishing is the right choice for many who love their home, but just need and want more space.

Adding living space in the basement is often far more economical than adding a home addition. The walls, ceiling and often the HVAC systems are already in place. Now, all you need is comfort, atmosphere and style. Basement remodels can be a great alternative to building an addition in regards to time, money and stress. Manzola Carpentry has numerous ideas, plans and examples of great basement remodels. If you need ideas on ways to turn that unused space into something you can enjoy for many years, contact us, we can help.
