School has started, the kids are out of the house and there is some semblance of a “regular” routine. This time of year is perfect to start a home renovation or remodeling project.

When thinking of renovating, consider the project that will most personally enhance your living condition. According to a recent study compiled by Realtor Magazine, Hawaii’s homes had the highest average cost-to-value ratio in the country. Therefore, homeowners in Hawaii get the most value for their money when they invest in their property. This is fantastic news for homeowners looking to remodel.



There are many budget-friendly ways you can add value to your home. Some of the most valuable home renovations in order of return-on-cost are:

1) Siding replacement. Siding (vinyl/fiber-cement) preserves the integrity of your housing structure and improves your home’s curb appeal. Homeowners who invested in fiber-cement siding replacement in 2013 increased their home’s value by up to 79.3 percent.

2) Deck addition. A deck addition is a low-budget way to make your outdoor space more comfortable. There are both natural and synthetic products that can minimize maintenance and enhance your backyard. According to the most recent analysis of renovations, a wood deck addition increases your home’s value up to 77 percent of the renovation cost.

3) Kitchen remodel. We all spend a lot of time in our kitchen.

Many industry experts agree that updating your kitchen cabinetry and flooring are a great way to enhance the aesthetic appeal and value of your home by up to 75 percent of the renovation cost.
