Remodeling Cost Vs Value

Remodeling Cost Vs Value tends to be a common topic.

If you are considering remodeling your home you may be wondering about remodeling cost vs value.

If you have asked “Is it worth the money?” Overall the answer is “Probably.”

Remodeling CostHowever, do not expect to fully recuperate the amount of the remodeling investment right away. Usually, you can expect between 80% and 90% back on your home improvement investment dollar, within the first year or two. With a well-done remodel, you can increase and even make money the longer you stay in the home. As with many investments, it’s the power of compounding that creates good returns. By being in the home a longer period of time, you give the real estate market time to increase and you leverage the remodeling investment as property values grow.

Remodeling CostYou may want to consider these things when deciding if a home improvement project is a good investment or not: 

  1. How long you plan to be in the home
  2. How strong the resale market is in your area
  3. How your project impacts your homes appraised value
