Is a Bathroom Remodel Worth the Cost?

Whether you're in the middle of starting selling the home you've owned for a year or you are researching on how to sell your family home after twenty, there's always work to be done to prime your home to sell. Depending on who you ask, you'll get different answers because, well, everyone has their own angle. Your contractor will tell you a complete bathroom remodel is necessary, your real estate agent will tell you get your home staged, the HGTV shows you watch will tell you to knock down all walls, and the Internet will tell you... to do it all. Who do you listen to? Data.

Remodeling Magazine had a fantastic summary document about what remodeling trends of 2020. This year, people have seen about on average, about 64% of their costs recouped from a remodel. That's means the average cost of a mid-range bathroom remodel is $21,377. You'd recoup about $13,680 (64%) of that amount during a resale.

So what does that mean for the actual sale? Well, lucky for you, Staging Dallas just helped out with staging a home and consulting on the bathroom remodel and the results are jaw-dropping!

This home in Rowlett was listed on a Friday, and by the following Tuesday, it was under contract $20,000 over listing price.

As you can see in these before and after photos, the bathroom was dated with floral wallpaper, glass tiles, gold accents on the shower and tile. By tearing down the wallpaper, adding some contrast with paint and hardware on the cabinets and installing a completely new shower and tub, the bathroom looks more modern and more spacious.

As we mentioned, this home was also staged professionally by Staging Dallas in addition to the bathroom remodel. If you are going to do a large remodel such as the Primary Bathroom, you will need to make sure the rest of the house can keep up to the same standard. Home Staging, unlike remodeling, is quicker, less expensive and can yield similar results to a remodel without an overhaul.
