Return on Renovations

When deciding on what type of renovation to undertake and how much to spend, consider how your future “resale” value will be impacted. Not all renovations are a smart idea and actually can reflect negatively on your eventual selling price. Most people think that renovating will automatically guarantee an increase in property value. Not so. You obviously want to appeal to the greatest number of buyers when deciding on what should be renovated.

If you are looking to sell your home quickly, the cheapest and best return for your dollar is to spend a little on interior paint.
