Now that you’ve bought a house and moved in, naturally you want to begin making the house your “home”. And, you’ve heard that remodeling bathrooms and kitchens can add value to your home, enabling you to sell it for more money later. But before you start ripping out the existing bathrooms, stop and take a look at the statistics below. I’ve compiled the three top improvements (based on percentage returned) in the national market, the west north central region (which includes Iowa), and specifically in Des Moines. These statistics are also split up further into midrange improvements and upscale improvements.
If you’ve reviewed the statistics, and you still dream of a new bathroom with the latest in rainfall showers, then by all means, go ahead! Just make sure that the cost is worth the enjoyment you will get from your cool new bathroom.
If you are considering home improvements, and are curious as to how much you can expect those improvements to return, please contact me at any time.
