When you're considering a major home improvement project, consider how it will impact the resale value of your home. 

Some home improvements are good investments because they tend to increase the value of your home, enabling you to recoup some of your investment when you sell. However, other projects are notoriously poor at return on investment. The top five according to Angie's List are:

  • Swimming pools
  • Home offices
  • Sunrooms
  • Master suites
  • Garage expansions


Good investments include: Steel front doors, kitchen remodeling, converting an attic into a bedroom, adding a deck, installing exterior siding and replacement windows.
