Q: What's better for resale value, refinishing your hardwoods or adding a bathroom?

Updated: May 14, 2023

Q: What do you think is the better return on investment, refinishing your hardwood floors or adding another bathroom? A:The answer might be surprising! It's the hardwoods. According to NAR’s 2022 Remodeling Impact Report

The report compares value-added estimates from REALTORS to cost estimates from the National Association of The Remodeling Industry (NARI)

A homeowner who refinishes hardwood floors for $3400 may recover $5000 more when the home is sold- that's 147% return on investment! A homeowner who spends $80,000 to add another bathroom may only recover around $50,000 at closing, a 63% return.

Two of the three interior projects that break even or better are flooring related: refinishing hardwoods(147%), adding NEW hardwood flooring (118%), and upgrading insulation(100%)
