Bathrooms…Data shows that bathroom remodels yield the biggest returns in terms of boosting your home’s resale value. At resale, midrange renovations recoup 67.2% of their costs, while upscale renovations recoup 60.2%. On average, homeowners spend just over $20,000 on a midrange bathroom renovation project, and nearly $65,000 on an upscale bathroom renovation project. This certainly helps explain why 26 percent of sellers make some sort of improvement to a bathroom before selling.
