We’re sharing 4 tips for bathroom remodeling for resale. If you plan to sell your home, you should consider remodeling your bathroom for added value. A remodel before resale is highly recommended. The condition of your bathroom can be a deal breaker or maker for most buyers. According to the 2021 Cost vs. Value Report, it can also recoup upwards of 57% of the renovation costs.  Although you have to cover the costs of the renovation initially, it will pay off in the end once your house sells at a higher price tag.

Here are a few things to keep in mind when remodeling your bathroom for resale:

Bathroom Remodeling for Resale Value

An upgraded bathroom can increase value but it’s not necessary to spend an arm and a leg making it look new. However, you shouldn’t opt for the cheapest ways to make it look nice and risk causing future problems for the buyer. As mentioned, the ROI for bathroom remodels is fairly high, so it’s best to put some genuine effort into remodeling it.

Bathroom Remodeling Design

Keep it simple. You won’t want to overdesign or choose paint colors that make a statement. A buyer probably won’t have the same design preferences as you. The last thing you want to do is create a space the deters buyers or leaves them wanting to remodel it themselves.

Bathroom Lighting Effect Resale Value

A well-lit bathroom can make the space feel bigger. Replacing fixtures or even just lightbulbs can help brighten up the space. Consider adding a dimmer switch to appease all types of buyers in case some do prefer a more intimate space.

Keep the Bathtub for Your Bathroom Remodel

It has become more popular to do full tub-to shower conversions. But, for resale purposes, it’s important to have at least one bath tub in the home. Since you can’t predict the needs of the next home owner, we recommend keeping it family friendly.
