With this in mind, I wanted to share The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently released 2022 Remodeling Impact Report. In this report, the NAR takes a look into the reasons a homeowner remodels, the outcome of the projects, as well as the increased happiness found in a home once a project is completed. And since 2020 was a huge year in remodeling (it is estimated that Americans spent $420 billion on remodeling in that year alone), this year’s report is especially interesting. You can view the entire report here. I have also included a summary of the results in the charts below (divided by interior and exterior upgrades, and detailing return on both investment and joy).
