Remodeling Bang for Your Buck

By Nick Nayne, Principal Broker, The Broker Network, LLC

Many homeowners remodel their homes to improve livability and functionality, resale value, or just because they want to make some changes.

The National Assoication of Realtors just released its 2015 Remodeling Impact Report. According to this report, as of October 2015, Americans had spent $326.1 billion on remodeling. This report contains the results of a survey asking realtors to rank interior and exterior remodeling projects in terms of their expected return of value at resale. Keep in mind that this is a national survey that may not take into account regional differences. The rankings of the top six projects were as follows from highest to lowest in terms of their resale recovery value:

Exterior Remodeling Interior Remodeling

New roof Full kitchen renovation

New vinyl windows Kitchen upgrade

New garage door Bathroom renovation

New vinyl siding Adding a new bathroom

New wood windows New master suite

New steel front door New wood flooring
