In the home construction industry, national records and surveys are taken that show broad averages of the most common home remodeling and renovation projects done in U.S homes, the materials used most, average labor costs, and what homeowners experiencing financially in the end providing homeowners with some insight in to the buyer’s market.
The top five home improvement projects range between a 70%-80% return on their home investment project. Wood decks and patio home additions come in at the top of the list yielding on average about an 85% return. Following Wood decks are siding replacements, partial kitchen remodels, window replacements, and bathroom remodels which all fall just under about an 80% return.
The top investments when it came to home remodeling was bedroom remodeling and offices remodeling. Returns averaged anywhere from 50%-70%. The lower end of the return scale in this instance was smaller remodeling jobs on extra bedrooms and guest bedrooms. The higher end of the return scale was full remodeling jobs on master suites and home offices. So in the end the projects that resulted in extra convenience for the new homeowners made the difference. It really does come down to who your market is and what they are looking to pay for. There are also home construction projects that will benefit a homeowner for the long term to increase property values. Investing in projects that make use of empty spaces in your home like an unused corner of the house or an unfinished basement or room addition will yield a return that will last for many more years than for instance, an updated kitchen remodel because there is always the risk of your materials and design features becoming outdated too quickly. Investing in structural improvements will also yield this type of benefit.
