Which of these remodeling/ updating items gives the best resale value to the seller?

2.adding a deck

3.putting on a new roof

4.installing an in ground pool

In an actual real estate transaction, the “cost recouped” for a given remodeling project depends on a variety of factors. These include the condition of the rest of the house, the value of similar homes nearby, and the rate at which property values are changing in the surrounding area. A home’s urban, suburban, or rural setting also affects its value, as does the availability and cost of new and existing homes in the immediate vicinity.
