Jonathan: “You don’t want to go putting all your money into a part of your home. If something happens and you have to sell your home, you would want to still be able to get your money back… Be careful not to put in things that other buyers won’t pay for.”

“If you’re looking to sell your home, we say it’s better to do a light makeover on everything instead of just spending all your money on one area. A light makeover on the whole place can make it feel fresh. Otherwise, your buyer walks in and says, ‘I love the kitchen but the rest of the house looks terrible.’ Then, they’re not going to give to you the amount you’re asking for.”
