Every so often, our clients ask themselves, “What will I gain by remodeling my home?”
or “Does it make sense to remodel our home?”
or “Which home improvements pay off?”
or “Is it better to remodel or to move?”
We set out to answer these questions and came across the latest report on this topic published by the National Association of Realtors®. It will answer the first three questions. And for the last question there, it is very dependent on where you live.
Every year, The National Association Of Realtors® Research Department conducts a study that involves remodeling projects. They look at the effect of the project(s) on financial gain and compare it to the joy that homeowners derive from the undertaking.
This infographic reveals that the happiness home owners receive from home improvement projects and how much money they get back at resale isn’t the same for every project.

And here is an article on HGTV. It explains the value of regular maintenance of homes when weighed against bigger remodeling projects. It was published in the earlier part of 2015. But it is pretty relevant even now, almost a year later.
