Top projects which may drag your home’s value down or may cost way too much to be worth it

There are projects which are simply not worth starting and they may even effect the value of a home negatively. Let’s get to see some of these.

  1. Garage converted to a living space. The big issue with garage conversions is, that there are in fact many people who would rather prefer to have the garage instead. Therefore these homes may tend to sell much slower and the added living space would also not change the price.

  2. Unfinished fixer-upper projects. There are lots of men out there who do have some sort of a knowledge, though most of the time it’s not adequate enough to actually successfully finish most of these. These can negatively affect the price especially, if cables were connected incorrectly or if something was touched yet not finished properly. All these projects may negatively impact the price. Also, homes with such unfinished projects sell much harder.

  3. Basement without an existing HVAC system. No matter how finished a basement may look if it doesn’t have a HVAC system installed, which means it’s without an organic ventilation, heating and air conditioning, then it’s not all that much worth

  4. Implementing too much concrete space in a garden area. There are some people who’d rather go for creating spaces for sports or parking out of their garden area. However concrete is very hard to clear up therefore, if there is not enough green area left or if the concrete area does not aesthetically fit in, then it makes the value of a property less.

  5. Giving the walls a very defining, dark toned color. Dark color may look good in a room, when implemented wisely. However this is not what the general experience shows. This means, most of the time, the dark shades would drag a room’s quality down, it would make them appear smaller and also the furniture which is applied would not make the rooms more appealing either. This means that wrongly applied wall color can really drag a home’s value down.

  6. Changing your whole furniture to upgrade value. As most people wouldn’t want to keep the furniture anyways or they would not pay more for the furniture this is an investment which makes not much of a sense but can cost a lot in return.

  7. Roof repair. Not many people are aware but a roof renovation can cost almost as much as the value of a normal home. The whole structural change may basically eat up much of the money which you would otherwise get for the property. It’s better to try to find an easy fix and be honest with the buyers. This will drag the value of your home down but you will still lose less this way. Unfortunate but structural repairs cost a fortune and they are only worth doing if the house still has lots of potential due to age, style or characteristics.
