Home improvements are—or should be—as much about the future value of your home as they are about improving your quality of life today.
You might think installing a lap pool–size bathtub in your bathroom is a great idea. But before sinking thousands of dollars into any home project, you might want to consider whether that $10,000 will deliver a return on investment, or ROI, when it’s time to sell your home.
ROI, simply put, can be calculated by adding up all of the costs associated with a home project, from materials to labor, and then factoring in the return the investment yields when it’s time to sell your house. You subtract the initial outlay of the investment from the final value.
