For most people, it makes sense to make minor home improvements (including repairs) before listing a home for sale. This is true whether you’re selling a house in Valrico, a condo in Brandon, or a home anywhere else in the Tampa Bay area. People make kitchen improvements, upgrade bathrooms, spend cash on landscaping, and even turn attics into bedrooms.
But what about other (major) renovations, such as a bathroom remodel? Is it worth the cost and effort, or should you stick to minor improvements?
Should You Do a Major Bathroom Remodel Before You Sell Your Home in Tampa Bay?
The average cost to do a major bathroom remodel (remember, this is across the whole United States) is about $26,000. The average return-on-investment is 93.2 percent.
So what does that cost include?
- Relocating and replacing a bathtub/shower
- Relocating and replacing the toilet
- Adding high-end sinks and fixtures (including faucets)
- Adding a linen closet
- Improving lighting
- Adding a ceramic tile floor
- Putting in a new exhaust fan
Naturally, you don’t need to do all that to improve your home. In fact, you should talk to your Tampa Bay Realtor® before you make any major investments. They just may not be necessary in your market.
