5 Remodeling Projects You Think Add Value
But Really Don’t
As a homeowner, you should be spending money on remodeling projects, repairs, and maintenance that help keep your home operating well and looking great. Of course many cosmetic upgrades, like updating the kitchen, add beauty to the home, make it more attractive to potential home buyers, and add functionality. But sometimes homeowners want to add features to the home that provide enjoyment and whimsy, and hope that these features will add perceived value at time of sale. Unfortunately, some of these projects might be seen as unattractive, an eyesore, or too expensive to upkeep – thus becoming a project that detracts value. So before you start calling contractors and scheduling appointments, you may want to make sure you’re not doing one of these low-value projects, especially if you are planning on selling anytime soon.
