Repairs are the renovations that will yield the most value for your home. Fix the areas of your home that are in need of attention from a contractor or handyman. In an article by Realtor.com, you will be more likely to get the best value from handling repairs than any other renovation. Good repairs to consider are: fixing a leaking roof, replacing broken kitchen tile, stopping leaky faucet, and having an electrician rewire a faulty outlet. Even these small repairs can increase the value of your home.
