Happy New Year one and all.

This season is a season of resolutions. These resolutions may include getting in better shape, improving our career prospects, or saving money better. We may also want to get some home projects complete. So we ask you the following question: Are you looking to boost your curb appeal and make some extra money by boosting the value of your home at the same time?

In 2016, home prices continued forward. In some neighborhoods across the Wasatch Front, it was one of the single best home value increase in years. Economists indicate that expectations are that this trend will persist through 2017. So, it’s important to make a list of all of the curb appeal improvements that you want to do this year. Curb appeal can add a lot of value to a house, so it’s always worth trying to improve the exterior of the house. To try and get some home improvements started, it might be a good idea to get in touch with a local company that offers home exterior solutions to make sure that your home increases in value. There are so many things that can be done to the exterior of a home to add value.

There are plenty of things you can do to improve your home’s exterior. American Home Contractors can help you to replace any windows that are looking tired, and any siding that has either been damaged or has started to look a little dated. Changes like this can really boost interest in your property if you’re trying to sell. However, most American home designs incorporate a large front-facing garage, so your garage door, in particular, needs to look perfect. Remodeling Magazine identifies a garage door replacement as the best return on investment when compared to any other home repair in its “2016 Cost vs. Value Report.” This outranks other home improvements such as entry door replacement, minor kitchen remodel, or a siding replacement. Having said that, there is great benefit to having remodeling work done in a property, and you can get some ideas by looking at projects here. Looking at works that other people have done prior can give you a fantastic start on your own. Alternatively, if you would like to consider a less internally extensive process and instead choose to replace your current siding or would like to have it installed onto your home, then it may be in your best interests to have a look at fiber cement siding installers for any information that you may need.

To illustrate for homes that do not have a garage, the construction of a garage may have an even bigger effect on home values. According to, a study at Florida State University in 2003 found that the existence of a regular-sized garage had approximately a 13% positive effect on a home’s price (when compared to no garage) among homes located in and around Philadelphia. An oversized garage affected home price by 14%. That could means if your home is worth the median price today in Utah of $220,000, your garage could help fuel your home value to the tune of $28,600.
