Add a new bathroom
Surveyed real estate agents who said this project facilitated a home sale: 1%
Agents who recommended this project before a home sale: 5%
This renovation project is not exactly on the list of recommendations made by real estate agents to homeowners. For starters, the cost of adding a new bathroom to your place can get as high as $60,000, so it’s definitely a major investment. Secondly, you only see a return of around 50 percent, based on the NAR findings.
In addition, it’s not even a key factor in closing a home sale.
