But can removing a popcorn ceiling add resale value?
That said, the value gained by removing a popcorn ceiling does increase considering buyers’ expectations for homes of a certain location and in a certain price range.
“With a $200,000 house with a popcorn ceiling, there’s a lot of demand and not a lot of supply. Those houses sell faster, so there’s less need to do it,” Schutte said.
By contrast, a 1,000 (older community) - to 4,000 (older or new community)-square-foot house in a higher price range, such as $500,000, can sit on the market longer and make buyers hesitate if it needs upgrades. Why purchase something older that needs fixing when they can buy something in a new subdivision with new amenities for the same price?
“The larger the house, and the more expensive the home, the more prone I am to say that it needs to get done—and it’ll add value by getting it done,” Schutte said. “One of the updates that somebody would want to see in that pricier home is getting rid of popcorn ceilings.”
Schutte estimates that removing a popcorn ceiling would add $25,000 to $35,000 in value for older community or a large estate executive home. For a home of about 1,000 square feet costing about $200,000, he estimates an added value of about $2,500—essentially, close to what a homeowner might put into the project.
