When we decide to sell our homes we often think of the improvements that need to be done. We would hope that these improvements would increase the value of our home and make it more attractive to potential buyers, but what "we" like in a remodel may not neccessarily be what the buyer wants.

Everybody has different ideas and tastes when it comes to the decorating, form and function of their homes, so how do we know how far to go with a remodel? The article,  Will a Remodel Help You Or Cost You Upon Resale? might put your ideas of remodeling into perspective.

Household improvements are great and should be done, but we should think carefully before investing a lot of money in a "personalized" remodel that may limit our potential buyers market.
