Look closely at the photo above. Surprised to discover that it’s actually a bathroom? It’s just one example of the intense detail and upgrading that has been taking place in bathrooms lately. For additional over-the-top bathrooms, view this post.
We’ve not yet had the pleasure of selling a home with this exact bathroom layout. However, we can understand the appeal of a remodeled bathroom and as Nashville REALTORS we can verify their significant impact on homebuyers.
Cost of remodeling a bathroom
In the past it was the ktichen renovation that ran up the remodeling costs. These days, many Nashville homeowners are sinking big dollars into bathrooms to create a spa-like oasis. Nashville homebuyers respond best to clean, bright bathrooms with luxury details. So, what’s the cost for creating these projects? According to Home Advisor, the average bathoom remodel will cost a homeowner between $8,358-$11,862.
Do remodeled bathrooms sell homes?
While there is certainly no guarantee that a remodeled bathroom alone will sell your Nashville home, it will enhance the overall appeal your home has on potential homebuyers. In a recent Cost vs. Value report by Remodeling, bathroom remodels in the East South Central region recoup approximately 72% of the cost. That’s not too shabby!
DIY and budget friendly bathroom remodels
Even if you have a minimal budget to work with or just can’t justify the expense of remodeling a bathroom just to sell a home, there are plenty of small upgrades and changes that can be made. Look to refresh paint, fixtures, mirrors, and lighting. Like any project, the more skilled you are the more you can change without hiring out. However, don’t try to cut corners or do any jobs too inexpensively or you’ll wind up paying more to have it fixed.
