Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway Home Services Crest CDRE #01044712

On August 1, 2022, Sally Jones published a very good interesting report on Realtor.com about list of DIY projects to avoid when selling a home.

1. Tossing out your kitchen cabinet doors,

2. Replacing all your kitchen cabinets with open shelves,

3. Removing a closet, or turning it into something other than storage,

4. Painting a floor,

5. Wallpaper,

6. ‘Distressing’ your cabinets,

7. Painting walls a dark color,

8. Applying stick-on tiles,

Perhaps there are might be other helpful suggestion for list of DIY projects to avoid when selling a home.

John every time I see home owners doing updates in the neighborhood I always ask are you planning on selling?:)) funny part is home owners should do updates for their own likes and comforts not when they are ready to sell. On a side note look forward to see you with the Brian England  coordinated lunch:)Endre

I agree with Endre Barath, Jr. people should do renovations to their homes when they want to for themselves, not just when it comes time to sell.

Hello Endre Barath, Jr. you are right, every time you see home owners doing updates there might be a possibility planning on selling, and the funny part is home owners should do updates for their own likes and comforts not when they are ready to sell. I look forward to see you with the Brian England  coordinated lunch too. Thanks for the comment.

Hello John, thanks for sharing. So basically avoid touching kitchen. I agree with Endre and Brian that renovations should be only for the owner enjoyment.
