    Description
    The average U.S. family lives in its home about 12 years. Whether you plan to beat that average and stay in your home a very long time or expect to trade in your current home soon for one with more living space, at some point, you will need to consider the curb appeal of your house to potential buyers.

    A good first impression has the ability to increase your house value for sale by 5-10%, according to Bankrate.com, and investing in exterior home improvement projects overall provides the best value for your investment.

    Among home improvement projects identified as being in the mid-range for cost, seven of the top 10 in cost return are home exterior upgrades. The mid-range priced project with the best return on investment is installation of a steel replacement entry door, with 101.8% of the cost recouped, according to the 2015 Cost vs. Value Report by Remodeling Magazine and RealtorMag.com.

    The #2 best value home remodeling project is adding manufactured stone veneer, with 92.2% of the cost returned.

    Wood and vinyl window replacement also make the Top 10 list, offering 78.8% and 72.9% return on investment for mid-range priced projects.

    And, vinyl siding replacement makes the list as well, with 80.7% return on investment.

    Among higher priced home improvement projects, foam-backed siding replacement, and more expensive wood and vinyl window replacement are high on the list, at 77.6%, 71.9% and 74.9% cost return, respectively.

    Adding a grand entrance fiberglass door will provide a 67.6% return on investment.

    The addition of some personal touches can go a long way in differentiating your home for potential buyers or make you fall in love with your home again.

    Custom glass designs on entry doors and sidelites, for example, are one way to improve curb appeal and differentiate your home. Adding stone accents to a vinyl-sided home, like the manufactured stone that ProVia (www.proviaproducts.com) offers, can turn a very ordinary house into a stunner.

    Improving functionality also is a factor. Energy-efficient windows not only improve curb appeal, they offer direct savings in energy cost, offering an average return on investment of five years for a 2,600-sq.-ft. home. To get the best value, look for Energy Star-rated windows.
