Based on must comments in the site. Things that add value to the home are bathrooms, and kitchens. A garage to be converted into a room will also add valued, but you have to considered how much money will you expend vs your ARV. Consult with various contractors and a realtor of course in order to determine how much value your current home will acquire after the repairs. Be smart and do not invest in the house, if there is no need.
Garage conversions detract from value here unless the house is 1200sq ft or less. I believe your roof and fence are capital improvements so will raise the appraisal value of your house, but many improvements will not. Carpet may not have a long enough life span to raise your appraisal. And improvements never raise the appraisal value as much as the price paid for the improvement. So save your money, imo.
@Andrew Weitzel the idea that you will spend cash so that you can refinance your property to get more cash out seems like flawed logic to me.
