Is A Bathroom Addition Worth The Cost?

If you are like most homeowners, you weigh every decision you make by considering the return on investment it could provide for your home. Some investments are better than others, but when it comes to additions, few provide the value that a bathroom addition can. Buyers who invest in a bathroom remodel, in fact, are reported to rate their satisfaction as a 10. If you are trying to decide whether it is right for you, however, these are a few of the factors to keep in mind.

Consider Your Neighborhood & Market

You might be planning a bathroom addition for your home, but before you do so, you should carefully consider the market your home is in. If you are planning it as an investment in your equity, it will likely only be worthwhile if your home is in a market where such a feature will be valued. In an area attractive to families, for example, you may see a great return, but in areas with lower home prices, it may not provide the boost you are looking for.


Develop a Remodel Strategy

It can be a big mistake to invest in a bathroom remodel or addition without first considering how the project will be best executed. If you are looking to make the renovations in preparation for selling, it is generally advisable to add bathrooms to match the number of bedrooms in your home. Remodeling or adding to include both a tub and a shower is also appealing to many buyers.

Making additions or renovations to the bathrooms in your home is a big decision. While it has the potential to provide fantastic returns for your investment, it should be carefully considered first. The best way to plan renovations that maximize your home value is to consult with a licensed contractor. Doing so will help you understand the process, know what to prepare for and achieve the most value from the project.
