As handy as you may be, you'll probably need to hire contractors at some point in your renovation especially if you are doing work that affects the heating, plumbing, or electrical systems in your home. Always vet contractors carefully. You obviously want to choose an affordable contractor, but you'll also want to find somebody who is trustworthy and experienced. Speak to friends, coworkers, and family members about contractors they can recommend, and always ask potential contractors for a quote and a list of references.

Regardless of whether you're planning to sell your home, landscaping your front and backyard increases your property value dramatically without making a huge impact on your finances. Add flowers to your garden, build a planter, clean up debris, and you've already made improvements to your landscaping without spending a lot of money.

That said, there are always house buyers who will not do the proper ground work, so the required maintenance renovations are missed when the home is purchased. The seller, if they knew about the issue (as they often do), has gambled and "gotten away with one", and the buyer has foolishly taken on someone else's problems for the sake of the cost of a structural survey. A note to potential buyers: always, always, get a full structural survey done unless you are an expert yourself in such matters because the short-term additional cost will be far less painful than finding significant issues and having to deal with the associated heart-ache (and anger) after the purchase is complete.

Laws differ from country to country and even from one state or province to the next. Moreover, without proper permits, you may face problems when it comes to the sale of your home.

As with home equity loans, there may be some initial fees to refinance.

It is well-known that a new kitchen has the best return on investment and can boost the value of a house significantly. It may be tempting to renovate this little profit maker first to get more money and to make the house more attractive, but there is a downfall - if there are any outstanding structural or major maintenance issues, the potential buyer, if they have any common sense, will find them when they have a structural survey performed. Depending on what the issue is, there could be one of several outcomes: a request for a reduction in price, a request for the work to be completed and re-inspected at the homeowner's expense, or, as is quite often the case, a permanent retraction of the offer. It's a hard pill to swallow for the seller, because typically a realtor's price evaluation of their house has not taken into account the cost of this additional work, and yet by having the work done, there seems to be no benefit in terms of increasing the house value. In fact, of course, there is - it's just that the evaluation was too high in the first place.
