Considering a Bathroom Remodel?

by Coldwell Banker Evergreen Olympic Realty, Inc. on September 6, 2013

The top two remodel projects with the highest costs recouped in a sale, have long since been a major kitchen and bathroom remodel. As shared from the National Association of Realtors*, the bathroom remodel typically costs around $15,000 and has 65% of that cost recovered in a resale.  While some remodel just to improve their actual needs or personal style (without a plan to sell their home soon), a careful eye towards resale down the road is very important as well!

Our friends at Houzz.com recently shared the top 9 things to consider for a bathroom remodel. You can check them out here:

I just finished reading the article shown above from houzz.com. This topic struck a cord with me since we always have customers remodeling old houses and installing clawfoot tubs. Water damage under the flooring is probably the most common unforeseen problem that most people encounter. If the tile has been cracked for years it’s a pretty safe bet moisture is penetrating the sub floor and there will be some dry rot.

If your bathroom is dated, you may want to borrow a little extra in the event you run into damage below during your renovation.
