2016 Cost Vs. Value Report

2016

What Is the Cost vs. Value Report?

The Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report, produced by Remodeling magazine in cooperation with the National Association of REALTORS® and REALTOR® Magazine, provides estimated costs for 36 mid-range or upscale home-improvement projects, along with the percentage of cost that owners can expect to recoup when they sell. Projects range from a new deck to a master suite addition.

Project costs for the 102 markets surveyed for the 2016 report were provided by Remodel Max, a publisher of estimating tools for re-modelers, using Clear Estimates remodeling software. NAR members provided the expected value of the projects at resale.
