2016 Cost Vs. Value Report


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.
