Don't make extensive improvements unless you intend to stick around for a decade to enjoy them

And it saves heartbreak if you don’t expect to ever recoup your “investment”.

7 Nawthorne Road, Old Greenwich, reports a contract. Asking price, $2.995 million. That’s a nice chunk of chump change, but the owners paid $3.3 for the house in 2015 and poured even more money into it after that. The new owners will get the benefits of the seller’s efforts, and as is usually the case, the market didn’t demand that they pay for them.
