To help homeowners get an idea of what home renovation projects will be the most valuable, Extra Space Storage analyzed data from Zonda Media’s 2021 Remodeling Cost vs. Value Report to determine the 10 home renovation projects with the highest percentage of their job costs recouped, or the highest return on investment. To determine the 2021 results, the report used data from 2017-19 on common projects done by about 200,000 home renovation professionals and that can be priced accurately, which is why products with specific styles or finishes, or projects whose price is determined by specific region or climate, are not included. The analysis applies a statistical model to the older data that’s based on recent construction cost estimates and economic indicators — such as income, employment, and market housing — to create the best 2021 estimate of a renovation project cost and its resale value.
