Not every renovation is considered a value optimizer.
Homeowners have a tendency to place a significant amount of attention towards interior upgrades when there is actually only little gained from it. So, before you break the bank and go crazy thinking that your home will receive a substantial amount of value once it comes time to sell, consider that you might be going down the wrong path. Here are some home renovations that have little effect on the overall value of your property.
“Loud” Lighting and Decor
If you plan on selling your home, but want to still receive solid value for it, avoid bright and eclectic design elements. Buyers tend to want to see tasteful and subtle details – mainly because they want to see a template that they may want to work with when it comes to renovations. A loud appearance could block what they have in mind, therefore turning them off to your property.
While the lavishness of swimming pools may seem like an ideal way to bring in buyers, it also requires a great amount of cash to operate and maintain. While you may live in a climate where they are great, you have to remember that there are several months where they are not going to be in use, therefore forcing you to maintain it. Some homeowners will also find that having a pool will be a safety risk for them, and could possibly skip over your property in all. Some climates will also limit pool usage, leaving the homeowner with a relatively useless amenity.
