Should You Replace Vinyl Siding on an Investment Property?

First things first: If you replace the vinyl siding on your investment property, the national average of return on investment is about 80 percent (give or take a few points).

However, that investment may be a good one—especially if you consider the boost in curb appeal.

Should You Replace Vinyl Siding on an Investment Property?

The job averages less than $11,000 across the nation, which means it’s relatively cost-effective (but that’s also a pretty large chunk of change). New vinyl siding will make the house look brand-new on the outside, but if you’re not making significant improvements to the inside (or if the inside doesn’t already look next-to-new), that may be a wasted effort.

The Deal With Vinyl Siding

Vinyl siding typically lasts about 25 years. Contrast that with house paint; houses need their exteriors repainted every five to seven years, which means buyers are more likely to want a house with low-maintenance vinyl siding.

Long-lasting, low-maintenance convenience is what new buyers want, so new siding may be a worthwhile investment for you to make.
