  • Save 500 gallons or more in water requirements; cutting some off the water/sewage bill,

  • GOOD NEWS: You can install it yourself.

  • And finally: If you are planning to sell in the next year or so, it will add some value to your home when you put it on the market.

Spruce up the Front Door and Outside Entry Area

This is a no-brainer and will substantially improve your home’s curbside appeal. After a few years, most outside brass and metal exterior entry lights become dulled, pitted, and rusty. Replacing them delivers a greater return on your investment.

  • In most areas, electrical codes allow an owner to rewire a light fixture without hiring an electrician.

Cost:About $140 - $200.

  • Adds curb appeal.

  • Is a very low-cost project.

  • Makes a nice family project for the weekend.

  • It also adds real value when you go to sell.

  • You might want to check out the shrubbery and landscaping around the entry area. There are some nice and inexpensive upgrades for curb appeal here.
