Remodeling ROI – Cost vs Value Report 2009-10

J0422981Clients often contact me about their potential ROI (Return on Investment) for various remodeling projects. While I can help with a sense of what appeals to buyers and what will help sell a home more quickly, Remodeling magazine's Cost vs Value report compiled each year in cooperation with REALTOR magazine gives much more specific ROI data.

Comparing this year's data to last year in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area shows average project costs went up about 2% and average return about the same as last year, with a negligible 0.6% increase.

The ten projects showing the highest rate of return also all showed increased rates of return compared to last year. Following are the top 33 projects with average job cost and estimated percent of cost recouped at time of sale in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metropolitan area, ranked by ROI (Rate of Return).

Highest ROI are for fiber cement siding replacement and steel entry door replacement…both with a rate of return over 90%. Lowest rate of return is for a home office remodel, with only a 44.9% average ROI.

Sometimes the real value is in your personal use and enjoyment while living there…and a quicker sale when it comes time to sell!

  1. I agree with the last thing you said. I don’t understand the people who remodel just before they move out. They don’t get to enjoy anything they do at that point. It’s better to remodel before you start thinking about selling, that way you can actually enjoy a new room.
