How Home Remodeling Affects Resale Value


It’s an old adage that taking care of any large investment you make will pay off in the form of resale value – your home is no exception. Throughout the years in your home – whether it’s 10, 30, or 50 – you’re likely to run into some repairs and needed maintenance.

It’s important to take care of the necessary repairs as problems arise, but did you know that remodeling key parts of your home has a significant return-on-investment in the form of home resale value down the road?

Kitchen & Bath Remodeling

Kitchens and bathrooms are where a lot of time is spent in homes. And as many may predict, remodeling your kitchen and/or bathroom provides one of the biggest returns. According to a study on home remodeling, in Baltimore, a bathroom remodel recouped 182% of its cost at resale. The same was seen in other markets, including Washington, D.C., Minneapolis, and Miami.

When considering a kitchen and bath remodel, it’s important to keep in mind which changes will improve resale value while also keeping in line with personal tastes and preferences. When thinking of kitchen and bath remodeling ideas, think of things that are traditional and timeless. A couple examples include granite countertop installation and stainless steel appliances.
