Increasing your home’s value can help you to get the most out of your homes equity and resale value. With the right home improvement projects, you can increase your home’s value easily. But expensive and costly projects can stop most homeowners on a budget before they even begin. By spreading the cost around on a monthly budget, you will help ease the burden of doing it all at once.

  • January: Kitchen Remodeling-One of the best ways to get a good return on your investment is to remodel the kitchen. Cabinets can affordably be refaced, countertops can be replaced and new flooring always brings good returns.
  • February: Bathroom Remodeling- Whether it’s the master bath or you’re adding a new bathroom altogether, bathroom remodeling projects are cost effective ways to stack on the home value.
  • March: Flooring- Replacing old and dated flooring is a fantastic way to get the most bang for your buck. Installing your own engineered wood flooring is easy and can save you a fortune on both labor and materials.
  • April: Interior Painting- Painting can be one of the most cost effective ways to increase your home’s value. Choose a paint color that is neutral enough to please all palates, yet distinct enough to call your own.
  • May: Curb Appeal- When spring is in the air, it’s time to head outdoors for some curb appeal home improvements. Painting your front door, adding lighting or new landscaping are all cost effective ways to increase the value of your home.
  • June: Siding- Increase your home’s curb appeal while the weather is good and install or repaint your old siding. Modern siding materials can not only make your home look good on the outside, but also add insulation on the inside.
  • July: Deck/Patio- When 4th of July barbecues roll around and you’re looking for a place to go; nothing beats your own patio or deck. If you’re handy with a hammer, then building your own deck can be an affordable way to add value and curb appeal to your home.
  • August: Energy Audit- Get more energy efficiency out of your home by getting an energy audit from your local electric service provider. Then reinsulate and seal any air leaks around windows, doors and other penetrations to the outdoors.
  • September: Storm Doors/Shutters- Replacing inefficient doors and windows can cost a fortune. Opt out for interior/exterior shutters and storm doors to increase energy efficiency and add value to your home.
  • October: Gutters and Downspouts- Installing your own gutters and downspouts can save you a fortune, but don’t be ashamed to hire the pros if you’re uncomfortable on a ladder. Some gutter companies can provide seamless gutters below or at cost of the materials themselves making it more cost effective to hire the pros.
  • November: Trim- Learning the fine arts of woodworking can be a challenge, but well worth the effort. Installing your own crown molding, base or other trim materials can really help bring the best price out of a home and all on a budget.
  • December: Attic/Basement Remodel- Getting the most out of unused spaces in the home can really boost the value without costing you a small fortune.
