My daughter is in the middle of gutting a kitchen.  Calls home included questions about the resale value of spending lots of money on upgrades.

The 2019 Remodeling Impact Report from the National Association of Realtors ® reviews whether the interior or exterior modifications are worth the cost.

Good news for my daughter renovating a kitchen seems to pay off.

NAR focused on projects with a dollar value as well as projects that bring joy.  The projects with the highest payoff are broken down in the report .

The best advice is to never spend money assuming a dollar for dollar return.  Your $50,000 dream kitchen may not be the same dream kitchen for the next buyer.  I’ve always suggested projects for your own enjoyment and spend accordingly.  Don’t get caught up with the hype of a dollar for dollar return on upgrades.

If you are considering moving within a few years check with your Realtor® on what’s hot and what’s not before spending any money.
