What Is The ROI Of A Kitchen Remodel?

Overall, renovating an old kitchen brings one of the highest ROIs in the remodeling industry, roughly 70%

Interestingly, very expensive, high-end kitchen remodels have the lowest ROI, of only 60-65%.

Consider whether its worth it to invest $50-60K or more into a high-end kitchen remodel. While such an upscale kitchen may be a necessity when trying to sell a 2 million dollar home, it will not pay off for lower value properties.

At the same time, minor updates that cost $12,000-16,000 have the highest ROI – an impressive 91-92% This is because making small improvements can go a long way in making a stellar first impression, boosting the home’s desirability, and raising the sale price.

Pro Tip: you get the highest returns on redoing a kitchen when you spend between 6-12% of the total home value.

    This website is a great way to quickly analyze renovation cost.
    Simple and everything in one place.

    A remodeling calculator is one of the best things a home owner can have when they are planning a remodeling project. It is very important to maintain the right balance between luxury and cost, when remodeling.

    Just a question. How could premium built in appliances (fridge, range, and oven) estimate at $5,400? It seems like that should be at least double to triple based on retail prices I’ve seen. Would wholesale or direct prices for contractors be discounted that much?

    I’m not sure how your calculator works. I entered the required info and hit the calculate button, but nothing happens.
    This would be very useful for estimating a basement remodel that I will be doing in about 4-5 months if I could get it to work?
    What am I missing or doing wrong?
    Thanks

      Lee, sometimes there is a delay with PHP script that processes the kitchen cost calculation, if there are too many site visitors at once. Try it again.
