Home Improvements Cost vs. Value

We are often asked which home improvements will add the most value. Below are sections of the 2005 Cost Vs. Value Report, originally printed 11/01/2005, by Remodeling Magazine.

The report outlines the cost and the estimated return should the home be sold a year later. While the report is nationwide, the information below is for the Columbus and central Ohio area. To see the details on a specific home improvement, follow the link provided.
