Master suite addition (midrange)
Average cost: $130,986
Return on investment: 59.4%
For a little less than that upscale kitchen remodel, you could add a brand new, 24-by-16-foot master bedroom suite to your home’s footprint. It pays back slightly less at sale than that upscale kitchen remodel, though.
The master suite has walk-in closets, a freestanding soaker tub, a separate ceramic tile shower and a double-sink vanity. Also included in the plan: tile on the bathroom floor, bedroom carpeting and basic lighting.
