About the home improvement value calculator

​​Opendoor buys and sells thousands of homes per month. Using our valuation model along with teams of local pricing experts, we’re able to isolate individual features of homes and understand how improvements to those features can increase the overall value of a home.

​​Use our calculator to compare 11 projects in 20 major cities like remodeling a kitchen in Phoenix, converting a bedroom in Dallas, or adding a pool in Atlanta. To explore the data behind the tool, see our blog on Top home improvements.
