These consistently change, so this list is what is best for upping the value of your home now, based on what industry experts see most of. See which project your home could benefit most from:

  • Upgraded insulation – This project will cost you around $2,100, and homeowners can recover 95 percent of the cost.

  • New HVAC system – According to AATempco Air Conditioning & Heating, a new system will cost you around $7,000. You can recover up to $5,000 for the project, and you will save money on your energy costs.

Are you looking to make a major overhaul to your home? Here are projects that will cost you more, but will still yield impressive returns on investment:
