Good morning, Dorie... it really is all about making strategic choices when updating or upgrading one's home. I've often met people who over-improved for their neighborhood and then couldn't understand why they did get a good ROI on their investment. I always encourage all my buyers to call me before undertaking major upgrades so we can discuss potential ROI.

updates (like painting yourself) do not have to be very expensive to have a big impact on value.

I encourage my clients to do the same think Nina Hollander, Broker . Some do not make smart choices so always best to ask a professional.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX  Upgrading bathrooms always makes a difference. Painting a new vanity with a sink and new faucets with a touch of new lighting can be a huge success.

Hi Dorie- one of my favorite clients was a gentleman who planned on selling his home in the next few years. He wanted to know what improvements/transformations he could do that would help when he decided to sell in the future.

Good advice, Dorie. When marketing homes, I've found that clean, uncluttered, freshly painted homes, make a difference.  Major updates don't always provide a return of investment.
