Home improvements like replacing windows; remodeling a kitchen; renovating a bathroom, building a deck; etc… can be done with your 2017 tax refund that should be arriving soon.
We realize it is more fun to spend a tax return on something like a vacation or a new car, but most will agree there is often a better way to spend it…or invest it. This is especially true if your home has older windows, inferior exterior doors, a leaky roof or any other kind of need. A roof that is days, weeks or months away from being a major expense is the most urgent need on this list. Plus, the energy savings from new windows and doors could total more in a few years than what you need to spend now to significantly bring down those electric costs. Not to mention the added security offered by those upgrades.
However, if your roof, windows and doors are in good shape, now may be the perfect time to upgrade a room or two or build an addition to make your home more enjoyable. Updating or completely renovating kitchens and bathrooms are the most popular choices when it comes to investing in your home. Those remodels also add the most value if a property is listed for sale.
However, if you are thinking more from an enjoyment perspective, adding an outdoor living space is very popular in the Lowcountry. The greater Charleston, SC area generally has about 10 months of weather for spending afternoons and evenings on decks and patios or inside screened porches. These are especially popular for those preferring not to battle the bugs.
