Safe & Sound & Worth More Money: Home Remodel Options Worth Considering

Posted: January 27th, 2011 by Just Real Seattle

Nothing strikes fear into the hearts of homeowners like the word remodel. But remodeling doesn’t have to be painful and in the end it can actually mean saving you some physical pain and earning you more money.
 
Deferred maintenance is not only detrimental to your home’s value, it’s also a threat to you and your family’s safety. The National Fire Protection Association says that there are 49,200 heating equipment-related home fires and the US Consumer Product Safety Commission notes that there are 15,600 dryer fires each year that cause an excess of $75 million dollars in property damage – all from lack of maintenance.
 
Along with safety issues, targeted maintenance can greatly increase the curb appeal of your home. Here are some options that make the biggest impact, along with average Pacific Northwest prices and your recoupable cost

  • Entry Door Replacement [fiberglass] / cost $4,040 / 67.8% recoupable
     
  • Garage Door Replacement / cost $3,670 / 77.7% recoupable
     
  • Minor Kitchen Remodel / cost $23,603 / 84.1% recoupable
     
  • Window Replacement [wood] / cost $21,407 / 75.5% recoupable
