Home improvements

Work done to your home that may increase its value, such as building an addition or renovating existing rooms, but not necessarily by as much as is spent on the improvement. In 2011, every dollar spent raised the property value by only 58 cents, down from 70 cents in 2007. Some of the most popular improvements are upscale siding replacement, replacing entry doors, renovating an attic into a bedroom and even minor kitchen remodeling.
