Does re-siding your home add to the resale value?Jul 08, 2016
The exterior of your home is like your face. It’s the first thing that people see. So, when a possible home buyer first sees your home, what face do you want them to see? That view could make the difference between them considering your home and just driving by.
According to the National Association of Realtors’ “2015 Remodeling Impact Report”, vinyl siding replacement recovers 83 percent of its initial cost at resale. Very few home improvements can deliver that kind of return on investment!
Of the homeowners surveyed by the NAR, fiber cement siding received the highest satisfaction rating—a perfect “Joy Score” of 10.
Remodeling Magazine’s 2015 “Cost Vs. Value Report” ranked fiber cement siding replacement as the home improvement delivering the best ROI for seven years in row. They estimated 84.3% return on investment.
Homeowners who have used James Hardie fiber cement siding on their homes are typically enthusiastic about the results. One Kansas City homeowner raved, “Our house looks great and is warmer, tighter, and a lot more maintenance-free. No more painting and scraping!”
Vinyl siding is estimated to increase your home’s resale value by 78.2% of your initial cost for the home improvement, so it is still a strong choice when considering your options.
