Home Remodeling Projects that Payback When You Sell

Remodeling-impact_2017 final




































Kitchen renovations and upgrades are among the top remodeling projects most likely to add value to a home at resale and most likely to appeal to home shoppers, according to the 2017 Remodeling Impact Report, conducted by the National Association of REALTORS®. The report takes a look at the cost of the most common exterior and interior remodeling and replacement projects and gauges how much appeal they have to buyers at resale.

If you are rebuilding your home after flooding from Harvey, spending money on upgrading your kitchen and installing new wood flooring are at the top of the list in terms of what appeals to buyers and where you get the most money back on sales price.  

Good to know as my husband and I start to rebuild our Wexford Park home that got 3 1/2 feet of water thanks to Harvey and the Dam B water release.

If you need help determining the value of your Southeast Texas home contact me here on the blog, call or text me.  I'm happy to give you a market analysis.   There is no cost.  #409Strong  #409Sold
