So, you’re getting ready to sell your home and move. Maybe you’re moving into an O’Fallon or Belleville home, or moving out of one. Or maybe you’re just moving from Shiloh to Caseyville!

Whatever your story is, you’re facing a lot of decisions. Some of them (probably a lot of them) revolve around stuff you have to get updated or totally remodeled before you even put your house on the market.

And, because most remodels can get pricey, it’s important to know what kind of return (return on investment, or ROI) you can expect on modeling projects since you’re just going to sell your home, anyway!


Remodeling Magazine’s Cost vs. Value Report


Remodeling Magazine releases an incredible resource every year in their Cost vs. Value Report. This report looks regionally at the ROI that common remodeling projects get.

When the 2020 Report came out, we at Valor knew that sharing it would be informative for our clients and our whole community. If you want a quick synopsis of the report, keep on reading to see our three top remodeling projects for the best ROI before you move this summer!


1. Backyard patio


It’s great timing to remodel that patio! Your potential buyers will be impressed and will want to move in right away to spend time on that patio this summer.

To create the perfect patio, it’s all about relaxation. From a design standpoint, you can include a central focal point like a fire pit or even an area rug.


2. Bathroom remodel


If one or more of your bathrooms need help, this will be a smart remodel to do now before the house is on the market. You can anticipate recouping up to 67% of the cost on average, not to mention what you save in selling your house that much faster to interested buyers.

Bathrooms are a big deal.


3. Entry door replacement


This one might seem like an afterthought, but it’s a home update that makes a statement and brings a remarkably big ROI. You can totally refurbish the entryway experience with a new door. This is one of the biggest factors for curb appeal, so be sure to get a professional involved.
