First impressions of a home can be critical to buyers, which is why curb appeal is such an important aspect to consider when remodeling and why exterior home improvements ranked highest among the most valuable projects to consider. National Association of REALTORS® President Steve Brown recently stated, "With many factors to consider such as cost and time, deciding what remodeling projects to undertake can be a difficult decision for homeowners. That's why exterior replacement projects offer the greatest bang for the buck." Surprisingly, only two interior projects made the top ten list.

Top 10 Remodel Projects and their estimated return of cost recouped:

#1  Steel entry door at 96.6%
#2  Wood deck at 87.4%
