Home Improvement That Pay
Some remodeling projects may improve your home without significantly increasing your home's value. Find out which ones pay back.
Recouping your remodeling investment may be your goal when you sell your house. But when it comes to resale value, all home improvements are not created equal. As a rule, kitchen remodeling projects and bathroom additions almost always pay back 90 percent or more of their costs. Other improvements fall somewhere less.
Consider these payback estimates* for the most typical home improvement projects:
Add a new heating------------$2,000 to $4,500---100%
Add air conditioning-----------$2,000 to $4,500----75%
Minor kitchen remodeling----$6,000 to $8,500---94%/102%
Major kitchen remodeling----$9,000 to $25,000----90%
Add bathroom-------------------$5,000 to $12,000----92%
Add a family room---------------------------$30,000----86%
Add a fireplace-------------------$1,500 to $3,000----75%
Build a deck-----------------------------------$6,000----73%
Remodel home office--------------------------$8,000----69%
Build a pool-------------------------$10,000 and up----44%
Finish basement------------------$3,000 to $7,000----15%
*Compiled from several published surveys
Payback value depends heavily on the real estate market and prevailing property values. If the market is slow, expect to see less payback than you would in a fast market. Also, consider the neighborhood: If you remodel your house to twice the size of the other homes on the block, it is unlikely that you will be able to sell at double the price. Issues that can influence payback value include:
Kitchen and bathroom remodeling projects consistently return the most in resale value and almost always help sell a house. Converting a basement into a family room yields the smallest return on the investment.
Projects can be large or small. Sometimes, the cumulative effect of small projects can pay back more in resale value than that of larger projects. Small projects tend to be cosmetic in nature: fresh paint, new doors, garden windows, and ceiling fans. Large improvements involve adding or upgrading living space.
Today's fad may be tomorrow's standard. Backyard decks, for example, were difficult to find 30 years ago; now they are common. Decks may not have paid back very much in resale value decades ago, but as decks have become more desirable, their resale value has increased.
The price of home improvements fluctuates depending on economic conditions and region. If remodeling costs are particularly high in your area (or home sale prices particularly low), you may not recoup as much on your investment as you would if costs were in sync with sales prices.
