HOME IMPROVEMENTS THAT PAY YOU BACK
Updated: Aug 9, 2017
Remodeling the Kitchen - You can expect to recoup 60%-120% of your investment on a kitchen remodel, as long as you don't go overboard. You should never make your kitchen fancier than the rest of your house, or the neighborhood.
Bathroom Addition - If your home only has one bathroom, you can recoup a large chunk of your investment by adding another one. It is estimated that you can recoup 80%-130% of whatever you spend adding a bathroom. You can also add value by remodeling an out-dated bathroom.
Adding Square Footage -
Adding more square footage to your home with a new room can be an incredibly expensive project. However, you can typically recoup between 50% and 83% of your initial investment. Just make sure you keep costs under control.
Deck Addition -
If you make your deck and backyard more appealing, your house will be more appealing to prospective buyers when you decide to sell. Homeowners can recoup 65%-90% of their investment by adding a deck.
