It never fails! Almost every time I show a house, the client will turn on the sink faucet to take a look at the water pressure. If replacing the faucet can cut-off a potentially costly repair during a home inspection period, it’s money well spent.

Joking aside, not all home projects are created equal.

For example, in some cases a minor kitchen remodel (think: new cabinet hardware, a fresh coat of paint, a new kitchen sink fixture) can have an even bigger return than a major kitchen rehab with new cabinets, countertops and appliances.

Here are (in order!) the home projects with the most ROI, according to HGTV:

Minor bathroom remodel — think painting the vanity and installing new light fixtures.
Landscaping improvements – curb appeal matters!
Minor kitchen remodel – replacing cabinet hardware, upgrading lighting, a fresh coat of paint
Exterior improvements – power wash your siding and driveway, paint your front door
Attic (or basement) bedroom conversion – an additional bedroom will always hold value well
Major bathroom remodel – think gut rehab, right down to new toilets!
Major kitchen remodel – this one might get expensive 😉
Deck or backyard addition – post-pandemic, backyard space is still at a premium.
Basement remodel – a finished basement is an immediate upgrade for potential buyers (get a sump pump, too!)
Replacement windows – windows last between 15-30 years and you’ll almost always make your money back on these.
