Do Kitchens And Bathrooms Really Sell Homes?

Do Kitchens And Bathrooms Really Sell Homes?

remodeling my kitchenThe answer is a resounding, yes.

Whether you are thinking of sprucing up your home for personal enhancement or selling your home, these two rooms are especially important to the value of your home.

As a result, these upgrades can come with a hefty price tag and a whole lot of myths.

Smashing Myths

Myth #1: Remodeling is easy. Sorry but that isn’t always true. Renovation jobs can be very easy or tough depending on the home’s layout, age, and any preexisting issues. So, go it your kitchen and bath project with an open mind.

Myth #2: The Lowest Bid Is the Best Value. That is not necessarily true either. The lower bid could end up being costly in the end if they are major mistakes to be repaired. Sometimes the higher bid could be the better value.

Myth 3: My renovation needs to be overdone to get a higher offer from a buyer or a higher price value from an appraiser. Some renovations can be done that add value to your home with having to be expensive.

Myth 4: I can do most of the renovation myself.  Sure, it’s possible, but it can be much easier, cost effective, and well-done if you use a contractor.

Before you tackle a kitchen or bath reno, consider these tips before you commit.

Do Some Research

You may not be interested in the opinions of your neighbors, but their style and the style of your community can have a place in your home renovating projects.  For example, if homes in your neighborhood include granite countertops and hardwood floors in the kitchen, it is likely that buyers will be interested in seeing those features in your home if you decide to sell. Also, staple and traditional kitchens and bathrooms can add value to your home because they never lose appeal.

Everything In Moderation

It can be tempting to make expensive upgrades to your kitchen and bathroom to give your home its personal touches. A bathroom renovation can be a week long project that focuses on added new paint to cabinets and upgrading hardware, or it can turn into a multi-month project that includes a backsplash, new flooring, new cabinets, and an oven range that would rival any 4-star restaurant.

No matter your renovation needs, the idea is to get the most for your buck, and that may mean making small adjustments that matter.

Finding A Professional

The craftsmanship of the home is equally as important.  You should avoid skimping on quality professionals for costly upgrades. When the craftsmanship is down right, these renovations will be well worth the money and can decrease headaches during the entire process.

They were very professional. Quoted us a time frame and they were exact on the time frame. The were very clean as they cleaned up every night. Any questions I had they were very helpful. Overall a great experience. We plan on using them again if we decide to redo our bathrooms. The kitchen came out very nice and we are very happy with it.

This company is great. They did an awesome job on our remodel. The quality of work surpasses everything. All project hiccups were professionally handled and solutions came out better than planned. Jason Rossi and his lead foreman on our job Brian Smith are very professional. Brian provided a wealth of knowledge in regards to our entire first floor remodel project. Brian Smith is trustworthy and the quality of his work is impeccable. Job well done JRossi Construction!!

The work quality was outstanding, the crew friendly and a delight to work with, and they cleaned up after themselves and left the place in great shape! When I remodel my other unit, there is no doubt that Rossi Construction will be doing the work there also. I had an issue with the door quality of the cabinets and Rossi and his crew met with myself, and the Cabinet Representative immediately, and the issue was resolved to My Satisfaction. You can easily tell that Customer Satisfaction is what everyone in the organization is focused on. Great Job and thanks again, Ed.

Rossi just remodeled our hall bathroom and kitchen. They are incredibly skilled craftsmen who use the best products. We had two different men lead each project and they were both wonderfully skilled (cabinetry, tile, hardware installation, electric, plumbing, painting, etc.). They are honest, hardworking, on schedule, clean up after themselves, and fix problems. We highly recommend them.

Rossi Construction just finished renovating our veterinary hospital. The entire process from start to finish was flawless. Jason was the only contractor who looked at our space and was able to get a rough quote to us within 24 hours. Everything ran on schedule and within budget, and the final product was beautiful. Our project supervisor was incredibly knowledgeable and easy to work with. I highly recommend this company to anyone looking for construction work in the Tampa area.

The guys from Rossi do great work. We did a complete remodel of two levels of our house (we have a split level). The work included a full redesign of the master suite (took space from the bedroom to make a bigger bathroom and add a walk-in closet, also changed configuration of some windows), full redesign of main level (kitchen, living, and dining space) that included floating a sunken floor and removing walls to open the space, and cosmetic updates to the rest of the bedrooms (new doors, trim, paint, etc.). Only small issues were due to subcontractors, and Rossi made sure everything was brought up to expectation. We're super happy with the result and would not hesitate to use them on future projects.

I would highly recommend Rossi construction. Jason and his employees were very professional, very conscientious, and definitely went the extra mile to make sure I was happy with the project. If I emailed questions, they were promptly answered. I believe the pricing on the project was very fair. I am recommending them to all my friends. It was a great experience working with this contractor. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Overall, the remodel went quite well. The workmanship is very good.The crew was very punctual and professional. I found some minor issues that I pointed out to them, and they resolved them to our satisfaction. They could have done a better job with drop cloths in the hallways. There was a fair amount of joint compound that got tracked around on the carpet, and some of the dirt & debris got ground into the carpet. However, I consider this to be a minor issue, and would definitely consider using them again.
