Upgrades to any home adds value.

Almost never is there a 1 for 1 value.

Baths add 85%, Kitchens add 75%  and all other less.

The above are rough estimates and only in viable areas.

In a depressed market, add for your enjoyment and future value.

Good Luck!

Not all remodeling upgrades give the homeowner a better sales price. Kitchen and bath upgrades can give you a better return than other rooms of the home, but sometimes, the house simply needs to be brought back up to the neighborhood standards. Also, check square footages, and position where condos are located. First floors are always higher priced.

There are different kinds of value, one where the improvement improves the quality of your life and enjoyment of the space. And then there is the most common reason people remodel. "The hope of getting something for nothing" ie: make the improvement, enjoy the benefit, and pass the cost onto the next buyer.

In this market if you are planning on staying in the home for a long period of time. Make the improvements that make you happy. If planned to sell the home in a few years, i would consider the improvements carefully.

Though the improvement may make you home more marketable, it may not add the value you need to recoup your investment.
