Thinking of remodeling your home or condo? One of the most common misconceptions heralded by the average homeowner is that every dollar put towards a renovation will be returned in resale value when it comes time to sell. Sure, for a particular specific buyer, certain renovations will be priceless – but when taken in the aggregate, most homeowners should not expect to get a full return on each improvement. Understanding how these numbers work can help you make the right decision when it comes time to prioritize your remodeling projects. As seen in the infographic below, some of the smallest jobs (like replacing your entry door) can have the best return on investment, while some of the largest (like a full kitchen overhaul) have a lesser return. Obviously, improvements are necessary over time to upkeep a property to the expected market standards – just don't assume that every dollar invested is a guarantee for increased sale price!
