There are many different ways to increase your return on investment through upgrades and renovations, and today we’re going to review several options . Prepare to enjoy a freshly renovated home and increased home value thanks to your tax return!

What is a Return on Investment (ROI)?

A return on investment, or ROI, is a measurement of how profitable a home or rental property is if you rent it month to month or decide to sell it. This number is generated as a percentage and tells the seller of the property how much they will make from selling the property. Your ROI percentage tells you how much you will profit from selling a property based on how much you’ve invested into it.

Why does ROI matter?

ROI shows what kind of return you can make on income-producing assets. Essentially, you can make a more informed decision on if a property is worth investing in by understanding how much the entirety of the home is worth. By knowing your property’s value, you can make more informed decisions about rent or selling prices, ensuring you get the most out of your property.

How can I increase my ROI?

The two main ways you can increase your ROI is by performing upgrades and renovations to the property. There are a number of upgrades you can perform on the property, such as:

  • Replacing old windows and doors
  • Installing an awning
  • Installing a bay or bow window
  • Investing in good landscaping
  • Replacing the siding on your home
  • Installing new garage doors
  • Adding security storm doors
  • Replacing old roofing
  • Installing green utilities, like solar panels
  • Replacing old appliances

As you can tell from this extensive list, there are many ways you can invest in your home! If you invest in upgrading aspects of your home and renovating the home to add on new, beautiful features, then your home’s ROI is sure to see a spike. The best part about your home’s ROI is that you will see a return on your investment; by bettering your home, you can better your chances of making more money when you’re ready to sell.

Why Upgrades Improve ROI

It makes sense that upgrading your home would improve your home’s ROI percentage: by investing in home improvements, you are updating aspects of the property, making it newer, trendier, and more appealing. The more appealing a home is, the more likely it will sell for more money. You are getting a return on the investments that you put into the home because you are investing in the property itself, increasing its value with upgrades and renovations to make it newer, trendier, and safer.
