Adding Value by Upgrading the Bath

What are two of the top items (among many others) that are recommending in upgrading your investment for resell? The kitchen and bath. When making significant changes to the bath, Zillow data shows a national average return on investment for a bath remodel around 56.2%.

Home Advisor estimates the average cost of upgrading the bath can fall anywhere $5,977 to $14,929. Remodeling a small or medium-sized bath can run around $3,500 to $7,000. For an upscale master bath, the price could easily run more than $25,000. Depending on your location in the country, labor costs may represent 40 – 65% of the total budget. So, whatever you can do to beat that cost back can help.

Jeff Thorman of Home RenoVision gives a step-by-step guide, full of helpful tips, on replacing a tub and surround. A professional could probably do this in about the same amount of time as it takes to watch the video! J/K! But, it is a good how-to, worth the view. (Jeff – wear a mask!).
