Remodeling a Bathroom…Does it increase Home Value?

When you are selling a home in Pawleys Island, a bathroom remodel may be one of the best places to increase your home’s value.  Depending on the existing condition as well as the style and age of your home, here are a few things to consider before tearing out that sink! Some practical tips from Pawleys Island Real Estate.

 

 

You can’t go wrong with contemporary designs and neutral colors.

 

 

Does The Bathroom Age The House? 

 

My hats off to this remodel job. This can be done for less than you may think.

 

It could be a black toilet or avocado tiles, but if your answer to this is yes, then a bathroom remodel can really make a difference.  Prospective buyers looking for homes for sale in Pawleys Island will look at this space as a liability rather than a feature, and this can decrease the value of your home.  It may also scare away buyers who are looking for a home that is in move-in condition.  The trick is to keep the remodel modern, but timeless.  The white toilet will likely always be in style, and tiles made of natural or neutral materials will keep the space fresh.

 

Do The Features Match The Price?

 

If you are remodeling only to make it attractive to buyers, don’t go overboard with a fancy whirlpool, unless the home is carrying a large price tag.

 

Depending on the location of your home and the value of the property itself, it is important to match the features of the bathroom to the rest of the home in order to get the most value out of a remodel.  Large homes with big price tags benefit from the bells and whistles of a master suite with a whirlpool tub, but you will likely not get your money back for this kind of remodel in a smaller home that attracts first-time buyers or those looking to down-size.

 

Does The Design Match The Home?

 

Not a bad bathroom design here….but does it match the rest of the home’s current design??

 

While you may love the look of the minimalist bathroom, if you own a colonial home in a historic neighborhood, making this decision could cost you in the long term.  While you can get creative in designing a new space, keeping the style of the bathroom remodel in the same overall style of the house will make potential buyers more likely to appreciate the investment you have put into the property.

 

Ultimately whenever making a decision to remodel a room in your home, the change has to work for you and your family.  Though you may not get back the investment of installing that overflow hydrotherapy tub, if it is what you want then go for it!  Balancing these tips with your personal taste and needs can make any remodel a more pleasant experience.
