Did you know you are more likely to get a return on your home investment by keeping up with basic home maintenance than if you were to redo your kitchen? One example of this is a siding repair or replacement. Replacing roofs, and windows is also on the list, having an ROI of 80% while siding replacements have an ROI of 92.8%.
The main reason for this is because home buyers would rather see security in a home that doesn’t have a leaky roof or potential for one, and be able to make the interior look exactly the way they want with their own upgrades. Think if you went to buy a home with a gorgeous kitchen but it had a wet basement from the home owner not keeping up on siding repairs. This can lead to bigger problems like mold and lingering stench. You’d probably choose the home without the updated kitchen and without the wet basement. Keeping the existing structure in good condition is key to ROI when reselling a home. As a home owner in general, this makes sense. If you had a renovation/repair budget and wanted a new kitchen, but also a hole in your roof, but you budget could only cover one, getting the roof fixed would be the priority. The same goes for buyers. They also have a budget, and if they don’t have enough money to spend on fixing the basics, they are more likely to buy the home that doesn’t have any issues but without an immaculate interior. While avoiding issues is important, curb appeal alone is a huge factor on home sales. If you drive by an open house and the outside doesn’t look decent, you probably aren’t going to walk inside of it.
