San Antonio Bathroom Remodeling: The Value of Your Remodeled Bathroom
So, just how much value will you get from remodeling your bathroom? Now some people define a bathroom remodeling project as a complete remodel, while other people say you can do as little as updating the fixtures. Whatever your definition, San Antonio Bathroom Remodeling is giving you a few benefits to consider.
The greatest benefit is perhaps the increase in value it means for your home – especially in Texas! According to Remodeling Magazines latest report on the relationship between remodeling costs and the resale value, you can expect a Mid-range project to recoup about 71% of the original project’s cost at resale time.
However, this report also indicates that the area which enjoys the largest value recouped for a remodeled bathroom is the West South Central area which includes Texas (and Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana) with 81.7% of the remodeling costs. That’s far exceeding the 71% national average! Of course, it’s important to note that if your brother-in-law did a shoddy job on your bathroom you shouldn’t expect to see this higher level of return. Make sure the workmanship is quality!
And we already know that potential home buyers list updated bathrooms and kitchens at the top of their list. So those homes with remodeled bathrooms and kitchens are more likely to sell quicker than those that haven’t been updated.
In addition to the increase in value, a new bathroom may improve the entire appearance of your home. The roll-over effect is often felt throughout the house with a new bathroom - if one area is updated then other areas look better, too.
Who knows, you may get ready quicker in the morning when you don’t have to share a small bathroom space with your spouse. Or, maybe your stress level will go way down when you can look forward to relaxing in your new tub at the end of a long day. And your social life may improve when you start inviting family and friends over more often than ever before!
The value of a new bathroom is measured in lots of ways. You better get started now!
