Whether you are considering a kitchen remodel, a bathroom makeover, or a lower level renovation, understanding the return on investment is important. Homeowners often ask us if a project makes financial sense, or if it will increase resale value of their home.

To better understand cost versus value, we rely on Remodeling Magazine’s annual Cost vs. Value Report. The report compares the average cost of 36 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale in 102 U.S. markets. Check out the results here.
