Home improvements are generally made for two reasons—for personal enjoyment, or to boost your home’s resale value. 

If you are making a change for your own enjoyment, you may not care how it impacts resale value, especially if you have no intentions to move. In this case, do as you like. Splurge. Revel in your living space and upgrade at will.

However, if a move is in your future… even your distant future… it’s a good idea to consider whether the investment will help or hurt your resale value. Here are three of the worst upgrades, in terms of return on investment.

 

1. A Swimming Pool

Only the most devoted pool enthusiasts are willing to put in the time, energy, and money to maintain a swimming pool, which requires heating, filtering,

The home also features an attached, two-car garage which is large enough for two vehicles or used as a workshop. Outside the home, you'll immediately notice the excellently maintained shrubs and flowers spread throughout the property, in addition to the sprawling back and front yards.

Pets are part of the family. Ask any pet owner if Fido sleeps on the bed, and chances are the dog either sleeps on the bed, beside the bed or has his own bed. Including a pet in our home provides comfort, companionship, laughter and yes...sometimes chaos.

Now we don't want to stereotype all dogs as being chewers, or all cats as being sprayers - after all, just like people, all pets have different personalities and sometimes how they are raised can influence how they treat your property.  We also recognize sometimes no matter what you do, your beloved pet will have a mind of its own, and a safe environment can make the difference for your sanity as well as the longevity of your hard earned investment.

Having a home gym can be very important for the avid fitness buff, as well as for those who simply can't find the time to make it to the commercial gym. Several factors play a role in making this happen, most often starting with having the desired space in an area that works.

Imagine if this was your view from your workout room. How hard would that be to stay motivated if you could look out at green gardens, or perhaps a view of the ocean? Somehow that urge to watch television while you ride the exercise bike might disappear, and the urge to play calming or energizing music may take priority. Continue reading below for tips on how to make your home workout room work for you.
