As sellers are looking at all the different things to do in preparation for listing their home, Jerry shared a great/brief article that I felt was worth reblogging. What is your take on this?

We continue with our two-part blog talking about which home remodel projects you should tackle first. As we established in the first blog, the kitchen is the most important room in the home that should be the first to receive an update. The return on investment is often around 80-100 percent of the original investment.

This second part of the blog will discuss the second most important room to remodel: the bathroom. Renovating and remodeling this room will greatly boost the value of your home and is a great investment. Bathroom remodels average a return on investment of 80-90 percent. On average, a bathroom remodel costs $15,800 which can dramatically change the look of the room and leave a lasting impression on the rest of the home.

Tackling a bathroom remodel is important, and if your kitchen was recently remodeled, following up with the bathroom will be the best choice. Remodeling a bathroom can vary depending on what needs to be done. If you want simple, cosmetic changes, replacing fixtures and faucets is a great first step. Replacing a vanity and updating lights and mirrors can also create dramatic changes for a lower price.

If you are looking for a complete redesign, there are many different floor plans you can follow. A bathroom is one of the most important places in the home and it needs to feel like it. Taking the time to ensure the bathroom is updated is a worthwhile task, plus it can greatly increase the value of your home.

So if you want to increase the value of your home when you sell, consider remodeling your bathroom.  If you are looking to sell your home for the best price possible, give me a call at 480.363.5139 or you can email me at JERRY.LENHART@CENTURY21.COM.
