Not every "improvement" will actually increase the value of your home.  In some cases, you can spend thousands of dollars only to find out no buyer shares your taste or your idea of the perfect home.  Take a look at these five types of home improvements to avoid.

  1. Bright Paint and Wall Paper: Although fresh paint is always welcome, your favorite shade of periwinkle isn’t.  Wall paper should be avoided—not only is it expensive to buy and install, it is difficult to remove.  Buyers will only think of the money and time they’ll have to spend to change it. Only repaint your home with neutral tones like beiges, grays, and whites. These offer a fresh look without broadcasting your personalized taste.  
  2. Putting in a pool:  They cost $10,000 and up to install, they require constant maintenance, and they are a safety hazard.  Although a private swimming pool may be one of your dreams, future buyers may view it as an “attractive nuisance.”  Similarly, buying a hot tub is no investment and you’ll never recoup the cost of the unit when you sell your house.
  3. Luxury Priced Fixtures:  Although you may appreciate the craftsmanship of a hand carved recycled oak door with polished bronze handles, other folks just see a door.  Spending thousands of dollars on practical items when a much cheaper, good quality fixture would have served the same purpose is not a good investment.  Save your money for features that buyers will notice.
  4. Whirlpool Bathtub:  Having a long soak in a big tub may sound relaxing, but most people just don’t have the time.  Many of the attractive features of whirlpools are actually outweighed by the noise of the motor, the amount of water it takes to fill, and the specialized care required in maintenance and upkeep.  Buyers usually look at whirlpools as something that they won’t use, but they’ll have to clean.  Instead of installing a whirlpool tub, consider using the space for a large walk-in shower, double vanity, or water closet.
  5. A New Addition: The cost of labor and materials won’t pay you back dollar for dollar in a resell.  An addition which doesn’t blend into the house may actually turn off buyers, since the home itself will not be esthetically pleasing.  Beware of the popular garage conversion—although you may need extra room, you could be eliminating potential buyers who are looking for a garage. A poorly done garage remodel only leaves you with an odd extra room that doesn’t serve a purpose.
