Tax Day is finally approaching. You may know how and where to file your taxes, but do you know where to spend the refund? The average refund for Americans is $3,120. Here are some ideas on how to make the most of it by improving your home.
The wise thing to do is get a return on your investment. If you plan to sell your home in the near future you could easily turn that tax refund into a larger payday if the value of your home increases. You can increase the value of your home by simply:
- Adding curb appeal
- Upgrading appliances
- Improving energy efficiency with insulated windows
- Replacing the garage door
- Adding crown molding or fresh paint
- Refinished basement
- New kitchen cabinets or countertops
- Bathroom upgrades
These are just some ideas. We are a contractor in McLean VA with many years of experience, thus if you live in Northern Virginia, we would be more than happy to give you more detailed options based on the amount of your tax refund and budget.
