Good news for home renovators: After six years of decline, the amount of money you're likely to recoup on remodeling projects is finally on the rise.
That doesn't mean you'll boost your property's resale price by as much as those projects cost.
The average return on home improvements is just 60.6%, but that’s up from an average cost-value ratio of 57.7% in 2011-12.
And every project on our ranking of the 10 most valuable home improvements recoups more than it did last year.
We credit the turnaround to a decrease in construction costs as well as the recovery in home prices, which improves the return on renovations.
The latest S&P/Case Shiller composite index, which measures the U.S. housing market in 20 metro regions, showed that home prices ended 2012 with the strongest gains since 2006. (See the chart below for a comparison of price changes in major cities.)
Your home equity may be improving for the first time in years, which has you thinking about those long-stalled projects. You're not alone.
The National Association of the Remodeling Industry says it saw an increase in requests for bids, conversion of bids to jobs and value of jobs in the final three months.
