In real estate, you typically get the most value out of Kitchen and bathroom remodels. But exactly how much depends on the area and the average price points. A bathroom remodel in California or Florida may not reveal the same investment value as a home with a remodel in South Carolina. The price points on the homes are completely different. I would recommend reaching out to a local REALTOR in your specific market to get a better idea of this value based on the local market that the bathroom remodel is taking place.

On average, a mid-range bathroom remodel can increase the value of your home by around 70-80% of the cost of the remodel. For example, if you spend $20,000 on a mid-range bathroom remodel, you can expect to recoup around $14,000-$16,000 in added home value

Every year a cost vs. value report is broken down by region and may have details by city. For the West South Region - A midrange bath remodel; the estimated job cost is $23,670 with a resale value of $16,085, a 68% recoup in value (The national average is 66.7%). Every local market is different, so speak with a local Realtor before making any improvements if you are considering selling soon.

I am a Realtor, not an appraiser but I can tell you an average full bathroom in DFW will appraise somewhere around $7,000. If the bathroom is smaller, the remodel will cost approximately $4,500, while a large bathroom can be in the neighborhood of $9,000.

Bathrooms are a great way to increase value in your home. Usually can get 60% more value with a bathroom remodel. I tell my clients remodel your house according to the neighborhood. Do not put high end in a medium price neighborhood. Be smart about remodeling.

  • Updated Bathrooms Can Increase Home Value

    When planning on updates before selling a home, it's a good idea to focus on the kitchen and bathrooms first. Home buyers love to see clean new bathrooms and kitchens and are often willing to pay more for homes that have them.

    Keep in mind that every home buyer is different. So updating in a way that appeals to a very specific style might not be the best idea. Try to stay neutral with colors and fixtures to ensure most people interested in your home would like the update.

    The increase in value that a bathroom remodel can bring varies depending on several factors, such as the location, the type of remodel, and the quality of the work. According to a 2021 report by Remodeling Magazine, a midrange bathroom remodel, including updating all fixtures, adding a new toilet, and replacing the tub or shower, typically recoups about 60% of the cost in increased home value.

    However, a more upscale bathroom remodel that includes higher-end materials, custom cabinetry, and luxury features can recoup around 53% of the cost in increased home value.

    It's important to note that the return on investment of a bathroom remodel should not be the sole factor in your decision to remodel. This is unless your bathroom is in dyer need of repairs and updates. Other factors, such as your own enjoyment of the space and the potential for increased comfort and functionality, should also be considered.
