Replacing roofs and windows was also high on the list, returning 80% or more at resale. In the hottest housing markets, investing in a kitchen or bath remodel is a wise investment, often returning more than 100% of the cost. As markets change, so do the ROIs. In a buyer's market, a seller may not get as high a return. However, the home may sell faster than one with a very outdated kitchen or bathroom. Research shows that different parts of the country get different returns. Don't spend money remodelling the bathroom if it's the only one you've got — that money is better spent adding a second bath. Many people love the charm of older homes, but many older homes lack a sufficient number of bathrooms. So if you've got a four-bedroom, one-bath home, it's certainly going to pay to add a second bathroom. As you can see, there are many things you can do to improve the value of your home — without breaking the bank. As time passes, buyers' tastes and preferences change, so if you are considering upgrades to improve your home's value, it's always wise to consult a local Realtor® who understands your area.
