10 Projects That Will Actually Hurt Your Home’s Resale Value

Luxury Bathroom

Your home may be worth more after you update the bathroom, but don't go too far if you're planning to sell soon.

Bold or Dark Paint Color

People who are getting ready to sell may want to give their house a bright color, but it's better to play it safe.

Tacky Tile

If you put tile in the right way and choose a trendy style, it can raise the value of your home. Just make sure that other rooms don't have old materials.

Low Quality Paint

It can look cheap and unfinished if the paint is streaky, chipped, or not very good. Some picky buyers will definitely not buy it.

Too Much Wallpaper

You can use trendy wallpaper in a small area of your home, like in the powder room, but don't go crazy.

Over-Done Kitchen

Buyers want an upgraded kitchen, but renovating your kitchen high-end won't guarantee you'll get your money back when it's time to sell.

Carpet, Carpet Everywhere

If you want to sell your home, new carpet can be a cheap upgrade, but hardwood will fetch more money when you go to sell it.

Huge Bedrooms

You may like big bedrooms, but that doesn't mean potential buyers will.

Textured Ceilings and Walls

Fancy, textured ceilings and walls may seem like a simple way to make a room stand out.

Three-Season Porch/Sunroom

Remodeling Magazine says that the average porch costs about $70,000, but the homeowner gets back a little more than $33,000 when they sell it.
