Especially in those parts of the country where the property market is in the doldrums, giving your property the “wow factor” could be the way to grab a buyer and secure a good price fast.
Saving is good – but it is super dumb if you only save to spend…for instance, to buy a big ticket depreciating asset which is worth less than you paid for it the minute it arrives at your doorstep.
