Renovations that won’t necessarily pay off


Home renovations are awesome! They update your space, increase the value of your home, and make your rooms more beautiful/functional to live in!

However, not every renovation will pay off like you hope. 

First, make sure you don’t spend more than your home is worth! You can only do so many upgrades until you surpass the amount that a house your size in your area could be worth. 

It’s also a good idea for resale to keep things consistent with your colors and finishes. 

Landscaping is another thing that can get very expensive and you won’t necessarily see a return on that. 

All in all, though, it’s your home! If landscaping or different finishes make you happy you should go for it as long as you’re aware the buyers in the future might not feel the same way.
