The Peoria real estate market has been a roller coaster for the past few years. In June 2022, Peoria home prices were up 20.4% over 2021. But as supply chain problems get smoother, interest rates rise, and more inventory becomes available, the market is getting tougher for sellers. Tired, dated bathrooms drive down a home’s resale value whereas a well-done remodel will attract buyers with a higher budget.
Freshening up your bathroom can reward you with some of the highest returns on investment on any improvements you put into your home. The average national cost of a bathroom remodel is about $10k; high-end materials or moving fixtures around can bump that price up. However, a quality remodel can be thoughtfully planned on a budget and turn out great.
So you’ll want a partner that can provide guidance, quality work, a reasonable schedule, and beautiful results. Let an experienced professional help you balance your vision with your budget.
“Renovation” and “remodel” are different in planning and construction. Renovation works within an existing space and footprint, to refresh, modernize, and functionally improve the area. This is when the team will repair, paint, and apply (or remove) wallpaper. Especially in the bathroom, you’ll probably change the flooring and lighting. So when you renovate, you change up the look but keep the general floor plan.
Remodeling adds an element of construction to the cosmetic changes. Need to switch the sink to where the tub is? Or reconfigure the hallway to create a better flow? Choosing the right company that can handle large-scale construction and structural changes to the space can make a big difference. The project will need to include upgrades to electrical and plumbing systems with all needed building permits.
A third option is that element of the unknown. A renovation can evolve into a remodel when problems or emergency repair needs are discovered in the process. Even if you’re planning a quick reno, give space to your budget to allow for the possibility that it may become a full-scale remodel.
