There are so many good reasons for home improvement — even in a tough economy. You may want to boost your home’s future sales value, add livable space, refresh an aging room or feature. Or you may just want to enjoy your home more, especially if you wanted to move but the market didn’t cooperate.

The National Association of REALTORS®, along with the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, conducted a survey in 2022 to find out the project’s estimated average cost and return on investment, and the joy score, or satisfaction with the completed upgrade on a scale of 1 to 10.

Wander through the rooms and view research highlights to see what might fit your budget and needs. C'mon in!
