The Truth about Home Improvements and Resale Values

The Truth about Home Improvements and Resale Values

While it is great to watch those glitzy TV shows showing how you can get the biggest bang for your buck when it comes to home improvements, the truth of the matter is, it all depends on which home improvements you choose.  

Should it be a quick bathroom remodel or sunroom addition?  Maybe not, as the chart below shows what actually provides the best return on investment when it comes to home improvements that pay off.


Now, as a real estate professional, I would also advise that it is dependent on your specific market conditions.  When determining home improvements for an upcoming sale, it would be prudent to consult a real estate professional to discuss your specific goals.  Call 650-382-2880 for a private consultation.

Christina I totally agree that those home improvement dollars need to be spent wisely.  We have worked together before and you DO have a great understanding of what should be done.  Not only does the ROI the have to make sense, but the over all look of the home needs to make sense.  For instance it might not make sense to have a new beautiful front door and bright red paint though out the know what I mean.   Remember that's what a Professional Home Stager does!
