You've probably heard that outdoor remodeling projects can improve the resale value of your home, but do you know which ones are the most highly recommended by Realtors? A recent report by the National Association of Realtors ranked the most valuable outdoor features in terms of cost and return on investment.
Here's a look at their top picks in order of their appeal to buyers:
HouseLogic, a homeownership site, surveyed consumers about their last remodeling project and calculated a "joy score" from 1 to 10 based on their satisfaction with the completed work. While a pool came in last in terms of its buyer appeal and ROI, it received the highest joy score, a perfect 10.
Other top joy-scoring projects included an overall landscape upgrade (9.8), a new wood deck (9.7), a new patio (9.6) and a softscape upgrade (9.6).
