In my experience it’s rare a buyer finds the PERFECT home. Some homes simply need a fresh coat of paint to make it perfect while others need to be gutted. Since property values have been declining over the years I’ve advised several homeowners, new and old, to be careful about improving/upgrading their home.
Most homeowners consider making certain improvements because they have no intention of moving anytime soon, but sometimes life changing events happen that are out of our control like death, illness and job loss, which may force us to sell our beloved home.
If you are a homeowner thinking about making major improvements and even some minor improvements I highly recommend consulting with your local real estate expert.
