Before You Sell – How much will you get back on upgrades?

Posted on: March 8, 2020

As I Realtor, I am frequently asked for home selling tips, and among the most common are about the return on investment for various home projects, upgrades and renovations.  ‘How much value will this add?’ ‘Will I get my money back?’

A Google search finds countless articles, surveys and expert opinions on the subject, but no real consensus.  For example, do a search on how much value a new roof adds.  2 organizations in the business of real estate have vastly different opinions. Zillow says you’ll recover 68% of the cost when you sell, while the National Association of Realtors says you recover 105% of the cost.
