My driveway is 25 yrs old. Will a new driveway add to the valus of the house?

The drivway is 115 feet long. The house is 3100 sq. feet. It has been well maintained.

I certainly think that a new driveway will enhance your property and increase the value of your home in the long run. Curb appeal is so important as it shows that you care and more than likely the inside will be as nice and well maintained. Go for it!!

Curb appeal is very important, a nicely paved driveway that says welcome home, also says, the indoors is as nice as the outdoors.

When the outside does not appeal to a buyer, it is hard to bring them in for a showing.  You want to get the driveway paved or be repaired and sealed if you can get away with that.

When buyers look at a house one of the first things they are going to see is the outside, so it is important to have great curb appeal and having a great looking driveway will definitely improve the value of the house.

Deferred maintenance takes away from a property's value.   Well maintained property sells for top dollar for any given market

Buyers expect a driveway to be in good shape, but it is not likely to add much value to the house.   Is there something wrong with the current driveway?  25 years should be young for well constructed driveway.
