Don’t waste your investment on these low-return rooms

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Preferred Real Estate, Inc.; www.AuburnOpelikaALRealEstate.com

Don’t waste your investment on these low-return rooms when updating your home:

  1. Utility Room: While necessary, utility rooms typically don’t add significant value to a home. Upgrades here won’t impress buyers as much as improvements in other areas.
  2. Home Office: With the rise of remote work, home offices are becoming more common, but they often don’t yield a high return on investment. Buyers have diverse needs for this space, making it challenging to predict what will appeal.
  3. Personalized Spaces: Rooms customized for specific hobbies or interests may not resonate with potential buyers who have different preferences. These rooms can be a tough sell and may not recoup your investment.

As an award-winning realtor, I can guide you through smart home updates that maximize your investment. Let’s focus on the areas that will truly enhance your home’s value.

Hello Laura,

It’s a good idea to put your decorating or renovating money into the areas that give you the most return or benefit for the money. Very good advice! Have a great weekend.

Good morning Laura. You don't buy a new car and expect it to appreciate, so when you make custom changes to your home don't expect to recover your investment. Personal choices come at a cost. Great tips! Enjoy your day.

Good morning, Laura... one of the things I'm always reminding my clients about is not to begin any home renovations or improvements until they've discussed them with me.
