Outdoor Remodeling Projects Bring Happiness and Financial Returns
Homeowners looking to tackle a remodeling project should head outside, according to a new report from the National Association of REALTORS® and National Association of Landscape Professionals. The 2016 Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features shows that not only can outdoor remodeling projects add value to a home on resale, but they can also bring advantages to homeowners planning to stay in their homes in the form of increased happiness.
“Realtors® understand the importance of curb appeal because when it is time to sell, a home’s exterior is its first impression to potential buyers,” says NAR President Tom Salomone. “Realtors® also know that these projects—from flowerbeds to fire pits—can bring homeowners who have no plans to sell even more enjoyment and satisfaction in their home.”
According to the report, which analyzes the reasons why homeowners complete outdoor remodeling projects and the value—both financially and emotionally—the finished projects bring to the homeowner, taking care of your home’s lawn will bring the most bang for the buck. Looking at the outdoor projects that produce the largest financial windfalls at resale, Realtors® ranked seeding lawn the highest, recovering 417 percent of the project cost at resale. Seeding lawn is followed by implementing a standard lawn care program (303 percent of cost recovered) and updating landscaping with sod lawn (143 percent recovered) as the most cost-effective projects.
