Which Home Improvements Give the Best Payback?


If you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen or finishing your basement, you will likely want to get your investment back when you sell your home. But when it comes to payback value of home improvements, some are definitely more profitable than others. As a general rule, kitchen and bathroom projects usually get a nice return on investment, typically 90% or more. Adding rooms or finishing basements tend to pay back the least. (Finishing a basement usually returns less than 50%, so it’s not a project likely to show profit at selling time.)
