Need instant curb appeal? Replace your garage door | Irvine Real Estate | Irvine Homes for Sale

For most people who remodel their home, return on investment is important. The reality is that you usually won’t recover the cost of your investment right away; however, there are projects that recoup faster than others and play a strong role in a home’s resale value.

Projects that impact curb appeal tend to impact resale value. When a buyer approaches a house, the curb appeal can affect a potential buyer’s first impression and, consequently, a home’s resale value.

Every year Remodeling Magazine releases a Cost vs. Value Report going through the current costs of projects, how projects impact resale, and what percentage of the cost is recouped in the first year.

For 2010-2011, the editors at Remodeling Magazine added a Garage Door Replacement project to both the mid-range and the upscale project lists. In the report, the garage door replacement projects ranked high, recouping from 69 percent of the cost on the upscale garage door to 83 percent on the mid-range garage door. The editors attribute this high rate of return to the facts that garage door replacements are among the least expensive projects in the survey, and that they improve curb appeal instantly.
