Homeowners planning to sell are often found to invest in home renovations. Most of them take on such a project to increase the value of their properties. Some of these renovations can be good for your property whereas, few of them can bring down the value of your house. So if you thought all improvements lead to increased resale value, you are wrong.
Things That Decreases The Value Of Your Property
Here is the list of renovation ideas which are a big NO. Take a look at the list properly so you can avoid committing the same mistake.
Too much wallpaper
There is no doubt that wallpapers can improve the look of your house. But as they say, too much of anything is not good. For homebuyers, wallpapers can appear as a headache. Having too much wallpaper makes it difficult to remove them. Instead of putting up new wallpapers, it is better to go for a refreshing paint job. This seems to be a better idea any day.
Just like having too much wallpaper is a headache, the same applies to have too many carpets. If you want to keep the value of your home static, either go for no carpet or only neutral colors. Having carpets is your own choice. Your choice of things cannot be forced on others, homebuyers in this case. It is better to remove all the carpets before selling so that homebuyers can decide what they want.
Neutral home sells faster than quirky ones. You may have an unusual taste but your buyer may not. If you have unusual tiling in any part of your house, it’s better to get them replaced. You should go with something that is attractive and is liked by the majority of the people.
Converting your garage into a living space
Converting a garage into a living space is a big no. There is no need for you to reduce the number of bedrooms unnecessarily. You should rather keep it simple. Also, a property with no garage has limited demand in the market. Majority of the people these days have cars and therefore, a house with a garage is what they choose.
These are a few of the improvements that you should never invest in. Sometimes it is better to keep it simple for the buyers to like it.
