The fact that TV channels like HGTVmistakesregrets complicate matters. Perhaps the house’s color is not to your taste, but the fenced-in yard is just what you’re looking for.

It’s both a blessing, says McGillivray, and a curse. The good thing is that you can go into buying a home that’s prepared and ready for anything.

Neighbors and the environment will affect resale value regardless of how much money you spend on improvements. It’s a bad idea to move forward on that particular home if you get a bad vibe.
