The biggest issue that is holding buyers back is the selling of their old property. People are anxious to make quick and stylish upgrades before placing their property on the market to make a quick sale and keep their asking price. A quick cost efficient bathroom, kitchen or landscaping idea can really spruce up the appearance and add to value of any property.
