Many Canadian homeowners do renovations supposedly for added functionality or improved design, all the while thinking it could increase the value of their property. Indeed, home improvements do help up the tag. There are some, however, that could work the opposite way. If you intend to list your property under homes for sale here in Fort St. John, BC sometime in the future, take note of these three common improvements that could adversely affect its marketability.
