We see a lot of articles about what home upgrades and improvements to make when you are selling a house.   Many articles are heavily influenced by sponsorships!  This is a spot-on, realistic article that I wanted to keep track of for my clients so Iʻm linking it below.   Read the whole article if you are considering improvements but here is the quick summary:

  • Fancy lighting fixtures
  • Wallpaper
  • Textured Walls
  • Unique Tiling
  • Carpeting
  • Bold Paint
  • High End Kitchen Remodel
  • Luxury Bathrooms
  • Home Offices
  • Combining Bedrooms
  • themaui

  • Removing Closets (to make larger room or bathroom)
  • Sunrooms
  • Built-in Aquariums
  • High end Electronics
  • Swimming pools
  • Hot tubs
  • Garage conversions
  • Intricate landscaping
  • Messy Trees
  • DIY projects

That said, if you plan on being in your home a while and need or want a better kitchen, a hot tub or any of the above, do it for yourself.  Donʻt expect large returns. And donʻt make it super personal. Get the work done professionally. Keep your choices neutral and select finishes that stand the test of time.
