We all want our home to remain comfy, updated and welcoming at all times! Keeping it update to date can cause us to dip into our savings account and it may seem as though the updates are a never-ending-list. It's important to know the average return on investment (ROI) for the projects you may be thinking of completing. This could be a determining factor when deciding which updates are worth your time and money.

Below are the 5 Highest ROI Home Renovation Projects to consider before the thought of ever listing your home.
