How Bathroom Remodeling in Memphis Can Increase Your Home’s Value
Whether the idea of remodeling your bathroom makes you grab your tablet to browse ideas on Houzz or makes you break out in cold sweats thinking of the costs and inconvenience, there’s one thing that’s for sure: giving your bathroom a facelift can significantly increase your home’s value. Here’s why:
A bathroom is typically an important selling point when you put your home on the market. Buyers want bathrooms that are nice to look at, comfortably laid out and furnished with quality materials. If they see a bathroom that hasn’t been upgraded since the 1970s, chances are they’ll either try to drive the price of the home down… or pass on the property altogether.
So if you’re ready to take your bathroom to the next level, keep the following tips in mind:
- Don’t embark on any remodeling without talking to a trusted realtor. Before you decide what to change, you need to get a professional opinion on what makes sense for your home. For example, if you live in a suburb where home are generally in the $500,000 to $550,000 range, you can go for top quality materials and designer lighting. But if your home is in a less wealthy area and the neighboring homes are valued at $200,000 max, you need to ask yourself if investing in top of the line materials is realistic. After all, despite the fact that the actual material value of your home increases, people looking to buy in your area won’t have the budget you’re aiming for. And those that do have that budget are more likely to look in an area where all of the homes are more expensive.
- Always hire a reputable plumber for bathroom remodeling. That way, you know all of the work is up to code, which will protect you from losses later. It’s best to involve your plumber from the very beginning of the project, so he or she can help you plan according to your realtor’s recommendations and budget.
