Though Dunwoody has only been an official city since December of 2008, it’s history dates back to the 1830’s. In the late 1800’s it was a crossroads community with the opening of the Roswell railroad. After the railroad closed in 1921 it continue to grow, until suburban residential development took off in the 1960’s. Now over 50 years later many of the early 60’s homes are in a prime location and simply need of home renovation and remodeling to modernize the living space.
With many homes built in the 1960’s or sooner, any remodeling plan is likely to include a kitchen remodel. Some top choices include increasing the kitchen footprint, updating older appliances, replacing cabinets and updating flooring and lighting. Not only do kitchen renovations improve your enjoyment of the space they provide a renovation cost recoupment of over 73% and help increase your overall home value.
Like the outdated kitchen, bathroom remodels are another area that we receive a lot of inquiries for. Home built in the 1960’s definitely benefit from a bathroom renovation, while those built even earlier are in need of adding space and possibly adding bathrooms to the home. Bathroom remodels in the area are recouping more than 68% of their cost, while additions recoup over 53%. Long term the effect on home value is positive.
