When the dust settles, what are the benefits of a home improvement project?
Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features
The 2016 Remodeling Impact Report: Outdoor Features analyzes 10 common outdoor remodeling projects and found which ones are likely to add the most value to a home at resale. The study by the National Association of REALTORS® and National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) looked at at the reasons why home owners complete outdoor remodeling projects, the value of taking on such projects, and the increased happiness experienced by home owners once a project is completed.
