At Group3 Real Estate We Keep You Informed… Cost vs. Value: Which Home Improvements Offer the Highest ROI
in 2017?

With the many different projects reported annually in Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report, not much has changed from last year. Recent and long-time trends continued, reports Remodeling. Curb appeal projects like changes to doors, windows and siding garnered a higher ROI than work done inside the home. Replacement projects, like doors or windows, scored higher among real estate pros than did remodels.

On a national scale, the top five projects with the greatest ROI in the report’s “midrange” cost category are:

Attic Insulation (Fiberglass) (107.7% ROI)
Average Cost: $1,343
Average Resale Value: $1,446
Entry Door Replacement (steel) (90.7% ROI)
Average Cost: $1,413
Average Resale Value: $1,282
Manufactured Stone Veneer (89.4% ROI)
Average Cost: $7,851
Average Resale Value: $7,019
Minor Kitchen Remodel (80.2% ROI)
Average Cost: $20,830
Average Resale Value: $16,699
Garage Door Replacement (76.9% ROI)
Average Cost: $1,749
Average Resale Value: $1,345
The top five projects with the greatest ROI in the report’s “upscale” cost category are:

Average Cost: $3,304
Average Resale Value: $2,810
Entry Door Replacement (fiberglass) (77.8% ROI)

Regionally, the Pacific division (California, Oregon, Washington, Alaska and Hawaii) saw an average payback of 78.2 percent for all projects, with 10 projects posting cost-recouped levels of at least 90 percent. The East North Central states of Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin, however, saw an average of just 54.9 percent, with no single project offering a payback of as much as 80 cents on the dollar.

At the other end of the spectrum are projects with the lowest returns on investment—improvements generally not in demand by the market. Again on a national scale, the five projects with the lowest ROI in the “midrange” cost category are:
