There are many factors which can add to a home’s value: a great location, an updated kitchen, new bathroom countertops, and much more. However, some homeowners remain puzzled concerning which updates they should make that will result in the best value upgrade for their home.
A recent article posted on Yahoo! Finance tackles this issue in an attempt to inform buyers of the upgrades which do not add value to a home. Some of the upgrades discussed include swimming pools, extensive landscaping, and wall-to-wall carpeting.

#1: Focus on curb appeal. Selling a home during the fall certainly comes with one advantage: The season’s beautiful foliage can automatically make your home more attractive for showings.
