With the real estate market in the toilet, it’s fitting that the same device can actually help you significantly increase the value of your home. Yes, we’re talking about adding a bathroom to your current dwelling, something CNN Money says can add up to 20 percent more value to your home. Consider adding a bathroom if:
- You have too few to start with, like only one.
- You have far fewer bathrooms than bedrooms
- A floor doesn’t have a bathroom on it.
So if you’re in the market for a new bathroom, putting one in the right place looks like it won’t only add functionality to your place, but also give you a good return for your investment. However, the article notes, “you can’t count on recouping the cost of any upgrade right away in today’s weak housing market.”
