Remodeling Magazine has issued its 2019 “Remodeling Cost Value Report.” The purpose of this report is to break down the return that homeowners and contractors can expect from their home remodeling projects and how that return will affect the overall resale value of their home. This report is released yearly and often provides information about new remodeling trends which can enable homeowners to understand what potential home buyers expect in an up-to-date property.

For all projects, the overall cost-to-value ratio stands at 66.1 percent, only slightly ahead of last year, and well below the decade-high of 71.2 percent in 2014. As in prior years, there are significant variations in return in different regions. The average payback nationwide for the 22 projects in the 2019 Cost vs. Value report ranges from as high as 123.8 percent for a garage door replacement in the Pacific region to as low as 45.0 percent for an upscale master suite addition in the midAtlantic region.
