3 Home Improvement Projects That Can Add Significant Equity to the House

Typically, a do-it-yourself homeowner will constantly look for home improvement projects that can add a significant value to the home. Many of the projects are small enough that they will not break the bank or overextend their budget, but will provide additional equity to the home, once the project has been completed.

Many homeowners will limit their budget to approximately $5000 for any type of large remodeling project around the house. While not a sizable sum, there are many things that can be accomplished to enhance the beauty of the home, add to its functionality, or replace much-needed equipment.

1. Installing a Wood Fence

For less than $5000, it is easy to add a wood fence around the exterior of the property. This type of fence can add significant value to the homeís existing landscaping. They can also provide backyard privacy, or be used as a containment for dogs. In addition, installing a wood fence as a home improvement project adds an additional layer of security to the home.

Installing a wood fence can easily fit into most homeownerís budget. They can be installed as a small picket fence, or paneling that has been pre-assembled, and only requires the upright post and some heavy lifting.

2. Replacing the Heat Pump

Heat pump air conditioning systems are only designed to last between 10 and 12 years, and that is with proper maintenance every year. As the home begins to age, many homeowners are faced with the idea that their home improvement project will be nothing more than replacing the existing heat pump air conditioning system. For less than $5000, a professional air conditioning company can replace the interior air handler, and the exterior condenser, and have the home heated and cooled properly for decades to come.

A newly installed heat pump air conditioning system is more cost-effective because it can make the home more energy-efficient. It can significantly reduce the amount of energy that is consumed just maintaining the heat or cooling year-round.

3. Painting the Exterior of the Home

One of the most common home improvement projects for the do-it-yourselfer is painting the exterior of their home. Often times, the siding can become sun-bleached, and take on a washed out appearance. A fresh coat of paint can easily put on a fresh sheen to the exterior of the home.

High quality paint for the exterior of the home along with all the necessary supplies can typically be purchased for less than $3000, which is significantly lower than the budget. It can protect the siding of the home for decades, especially when it is applied properly. Depending on the type of siding installed on the house, whether it is fiber-cement, vinyl or stucco, a fresh coat of exterior paint can add a high level of protection.

There are significant ways to add extra value to the equity of the home. By selecting the right types of home improvement projects, any homeowner can increase the homeís value, while enhancing its appearance or functionality.

    Here’s a one line quote.

    This part isn’t quoted. Here’s a longer quote:

    It’s like a language. You learn the alphabet, which are the scales. You learn sentences, which are the chords. And then you talk extemporaneously with the horn. It’s a wonderful thing to speak extemporaneously, which is something I’ve never gotten the hang of. But musically I love to talk just off the top of my head. And that’s what jazz music is all about.

    HTML Element Tag Tests

    All other HTML tags listed in the FAQ:

    Here is the address for Automattic, using the <address> tag:

    355 1st Street Suite 202
    San Francisco, CA 94105
    United States

    This is an example of an <anchor> (otherwise known as a link). This abbr. is an example of an <abbr> tag in the middle of a sentence. Here is a TLA showing off the <acronym> tag. What, you want to see some over-sized text using the <big> tag? Can you cite a reference for that, using the <cite> tag? Have you noticed that all of the tag names are displayed in code-form, using the <code> tag? Similarly, I could emulate keyboard text, using the <kbd> text tag, or emulate teletype text using the <tt> tag.

    Oh no! I wrote something incorrectly. I’d better delete it, using the <del> tag. I could alternately strike something out using the <strike> tag, or strike something out using the <s> tag. So many choices, which I emphasize using the <em> tag. Just to clarify, this is some inserted text, that I’ll highlight using the <ins> tag.

    Need to display completely unformatted text, such as a large block of code? Use the <pre> tag, which lets you display:

    #container {
    	float: left;
    	margin: 0 -240px 0 0;
    	width: 100%;
    }

    Want to quote the WordPress tagline Code is Poetry? Use the <q> tag to add quotes around it. This is strong text (otherwise known as bold), using the <strong> tag.

    Need to write H2O or E = MC2? You may find great use for subscripting text using the <sub> tag, or for superscripting text using the <sup> tag. Need to call out a variable? Use the <var> tag.
