  3. Pam Wattenbarger

    We actually replaced our roof not too long ago after a hailstorm. It definitely made our home value go up!

  4. This is great information!! It can be so hard to know what type of investments will really pay off when owning a house.

  5. I definitely trust Sears Home Services with any home improvement needed on my home. I like the high return on investment information. We could use roof and door replacement at the moment.

  9. Wow. Those are some helpful statistics. We definitely need to make some home improvements soon.

  10. That is really helpful information! I had no idea that Sears did home improvement!

  11. This list is spot on. I am all about a zen bathroom, I need space, storage, closet, hot tub (you know, the little things!)

  12. We are in the beginning stages of planning another renovation, so this post comes at the perfect time. I will certainly be calling Sears for a consultation and estimate.

  13. I am currently renovating my house and it’s been one heck of a ride. This is really good information though, I always knew that improving your home will raise its value!

    Oh, this is very interesting. I will share this with my aunt, she likes investing her money.

  15. I love Sears! They usually have great options with prices that aren’t trying to kill me.

  16. I don’t have one near me so I don’t get to see it often. However, I’ve been in one and loved it!

    This sounds so great. e live near a Sears, I’ll have to check it out. 

  19. Kristi

    We are starting to look at the priority for a lot of these projects, trying to decide which to do first.

  20. I have been a fan of Sears for along time. My mother and father would shop there on a weekly basis. I love shopping for home items and sprucing up my kitchen

  21. Great post! We are in the process of upgrading so we can sell and when doing this you have to be smart. Every dime matters.

  22. Great list, especially liked learning which home improvement projects yielded the greatest rate of return on investment. We did a huge remodel/addition a few years ago. For what we spend we could have just bought a second house, but we love our home and in the end, it definitely added value. But would have skimped on some areas if we had your chart.

  23. Nikki Wayne

    What a wonderful list. I will keep this post, someday I’ll have my own house.

  24. We just did a bathroom in preparation to sell. I’m glad we’ll get back at least some of our money! Haha!

  25. Kendall

    Posts like this are always really fun to read! Home improvements can be challenging and time consuming, but almost always worth the pain. I love watching HGTV shows, and it always seems like although things go wrong and cost goes up, it ends up beautifully!

  26. Kathy

    This has a lot of great information. It’s good to know all of this. If all goes well, I’ll be getting a home in one week! This was a great post for me at the right timing too!

  27. Nikki

    It’s good to know about this info. It such a helpful and I would like to spread it.

  28. Our house is in dire need of some TLC. It could use a new coat of paint inside and out. Plus, the flooring needs to be replaced. We are trying to decide what we want to put in our house.

  29. I wish I would have read this before putting our house on the market last Spring. Thankfully it sold for full price within three days, but I still would have liked to tweak a few things.

  30. Christina Aliperti

    I love Sears and I didn’t even realize they did this type of stuff. I also didn’t realize the financial value of a steel entry door.

  43. A month ago, I needed to sell my old house since I had already committed to a new one. Although I desperately yearned to detach myself from the old house, I had no idea where to start. Fortunately, these quick steps from Sears eased the process for me. I didn’t know Sears did home improvement stuff until I bumped into this great information; when I needed it most. And if there is a great lesson I learnt is that your house should be in top shape so as to attract buyers. I thought my house was ready for listing but these tips made me take a second look at it and realise it had major flaws.

    I started by fixing the kitchen which I consider a showcase area of the house. Though it was not completely moved to the other side, all problems were taken care of to leave it useable, relaxing and comfortable. I’m talking about a complete re-design of my old kitchen to come up with a nice modern kitchen that a buyer can fondly picture their family in.

    Another standout area that needed special attention was the bathroom. It needed replacements around such areas as the sink, shower and toilet. Chipped tiles on the floor and wall also needed replacement. A new shower curtain and toilet seat gave the bathroom an instant upgrade and an appeal you can’t deny.

    Having renovated these two key areas, anyone could tell the significant difference the house had. My roof had been recently replaced after leaking so I shifted my focus to minor repairs. These included the windows, siding, lighting and the exterior of the home. Finally, I had a sparkling interior with new fixtures and a beautiful exterior.

    Would you believe that my house sold for more than its price? The money I spent on it was actually an investment. I am grateful to Sears for this advice. I had no idea how this would turn out but I ended up making money and left the buyer happy and eager to move in.
