32 home upgrades that are a huge waste of money
One of the first resources realtors use to determine the value of your home is the neighbourhood you live in and the homes in it. “If you improve your home too much, in any area, you may price your home outside of the neighbourhood you live in,” warns Ryan Fitzgerald, owner/broker of Uphomes. A large or expensive remodel that doesn’t make sense in your neighbourhood won’t match up with the price per square metre with neighbouring homes. “You may find you’re priced well outside the neighbourhood price range,” says Fitzgerald.
