It sounds a little crazy, but some experts are saying that making improvements to your home could be more important than what’s in your savings account.
The reasons for this are twofold. First, any improvements you’ve made should increase the value of your house when it’s time for you to sell. Hopefully, you will recoup much of the cost you put in. Secondly, making improvements will rejuvenate your own living situation and make it better and more enjoyable without you having to start completely over.
You should focus on select projects that will truly increase your home’s value — the ones that aren’t merely cosmetic, but add to the overall function of the space.
