New Year, New Bath: Increase Home Value with a Bath MakeoverJanuary 18, 2019
If you know you’re going to be selling your home at some point in the future, a bathroom remodel is a great way to increase your home’s value!
Your bathroom should be a sanctuary in your home, but that can be hard if you have leaks, mold or outdated colors. Bathrooms can be deal breakers or makers for home buyers.
It is wise to have at least one bathroom with a tub in your home. Many buyers prefer a soak-in tub, especially if they have younger children. According to the National Associated of Realtors, as long as your home has at least one tub, switching from a tub to shower shouldn’t negatively affect your resale value.
“Next to kitchens, bathrooms are the number two selling point in most homes,” according to Cedric Stewart, a residential sales consultant and team leader of Entourage RG at Keller Williams in Washington D.C. “Nail this upgrade and you’re halfway to the closing table!”
Research shows that even a minor bathroom remodel can give you a 102% Return on Investment.
Before you decide to update, you should make sure there are no plumbing, structural, or electrical problems that could delay your remodel. With bathroom makeovers, going the DIY route could end up costing you more money in the long run. It is best to hire an expert who can do an expert job.
