Using your savings to improve your home may pay off more than buying a new house.

Although there are many good reasons to renovate your home, your own comfort
and enjoyment are important factors that shouldn’t be overlooked. If you renovate
solely based on how it will impact the future sales price down the line, you may end
up living in a showplace that doesn’t feel like a home. Your comfort and enjoyment
are more important than what improvements will make the most money when you
eventually sell.
Renovating is often seen as the only way to get everything you want in a house,
from the ideal kitchen setup to the spacious closets you covet. The best bet is to use
timeless styles that send the message of sophistication.
