Upgrades on New Construction

 Upgrades are often priced for a moment in time, and aren’t going to add any profit 10 years from now, so choose them for you. I went on a listing appointment where the owner was pointing out all of the upgrades he paid for 10 years ago. Though certain features add substance like crown molding, other things just don’t. You may have paid $500 more for an upgraded bathtub 10 years ago, but understand it is now 10 years old. When I work with buyers on new construction, I ask this question. Are you doing this for you or the next owner? In all likelihood, the next owner isn’t going to be impressed with your upgraded light switch plate. Spend money on the things that will bring you joy, instead of trying to anticipate how someone might appreciate them in the future.
