It's fun to watch extreme and outlandish remodeling projects come to life on design shows. but think twice when deciding what to do with your own home. If renovations are on your to-do list,
consider how they may affect your home's future resale value. Here are a few improvement projects that may end up costing you more when you decide to sell.
SWIMMING POOL - Pool construction and maintenance are major expenses. While you may enjoy countless days poolside, when it comes time to sell, you may see dollars going down the drain.
For example, some families with small children might be hesitant to take on the expenses and risks associated with having a pool.
COMBINING BEDROOMS - Resist the urge to turn two small bedrooms into a large suite. You might end up with a large room that diminishes your resale value. Industry experts say each bedroom can add 15% to the selling price.
TOO MUCH WALLPAPER - Wallpaper is on-trend for 2022, but your chic design choices may be a headache for someone else. Removing wallpaper isn't easy, and potential buyers may not want to take on such a big chore.
