The Cost of Remodeling October 3, 2013

NE Kitchen

Everyone wonders what their project will cost.  Will I be able to afford what I want to do?  If I have a budget, what can I get for it?  Will it cost more?  Remodeling Magazine provides a great Cost vs. Value report every year that can give you a very good idea of what remodeling projects cost in every area of the country.  For instance, a midrange, major kitchen remodel in Portland can easily cost $55,000 according to the Remodeling 2012–13 Cost vs. Value Report (www.costvsvalue.com).  Take a look at their charts to get an idea of costs vs. what you might recoup at resale.  You can also compare your city to the area or the national average.
