Over to you
Reselling of real estate properties also depends on the current market price so no matter how good you renovate your old house or flat you cannot raise it above the particular price that is trending currently. So always survey the market price before making your decision on renovation work. Keep account of the ROI. Don’t end up spending more without thinking, or you may end up with no buyer who is willing (or afford) to buy your overrated house or flat.
