Major Kitchen Remodel – Yes or No?

Homeowners often weigh the cost of remodeling their kitchen against two factors, how much will it add to the resale value and regardless,  how much enjoyment will my family and I receive for the number of years we get to enjoy it? While the enjoyment factor can be priceless… it does help to know how much of your investment can be recovered. Not to mention, if it comes down to a prospective buyer deciding between your house and a neighbor’s very similar house, and your house is the only one with a fully remodeled kitchen… it is a very good chance, you’ll receive the offer!

According to Hanley-Wood Media, the average cost of a major kitchen remodel is $61,087, and the average amount you will recover is $37,514 or 61.4%! Pretty good return on your money, considering how much joy it will bring the cook in the family, as well as the one who loves to entertain!

For those of you that like to know the details or definition of a “Major Kitchen Remodel”:

Update an outmoded 200-square-foot kitchen with a functional layout of 30 linear feet of semi-custom  wood cabinets, including a 3-by-5-foot island; laminate  counter tops;  and standard double- tub stainless-steel  sink with standard  single-lever faucet. Include energy-efficient  wall oven, cook-top, ventilation  system,  built-in microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal, and custom lighting. Add new resilient flooring. Finish with painted walls, trim, and ceiling.
