You can make a million mistakes trying to sell your own home. One of them is making the wrong improvements. Many times, an expensive addition or repair can be the kind of thing that can cost you far more than you get back.

True, the house should present a favorable appearance – mowed lawn, trimmed shrubs, and no obvious indication of neglect, but it’s rare when a large financial undertaking will bring more than it cost in the final selling price.

There is always the financial risk of miscalculation, too. Home repair costs frequently end up a lot higher than originally anticipated. You may end up with a faster sale and less inconvenience if you lower the selling price an equivalent amount.
