Worst Value Home Renovations

In the past I’ve written about the best value home renovations and this time I bring you an article about the worst value home renovations. However, just as in the past articles, I think the most important factor in deciding whether or not you should undertake a particular renovation is whether or not you will enjoy it (and, of course, if you can pay for it). Whether you can get a ROI on it should be a secondary, if even that, concern.

That being said, the four value killing renovations are adding a swimming pool, poorly designed addition, trendy finishes, and a fancy schmancy jacuzzi with fifteen jets and a masseuse hidden in a separate compartment. Now, if you read the descriptions in the article linked below, it’s pretty obvious why some of these are a bad idea (maintaining a pool when you don’t want one is a major turnoff).
