I’m not saying to not make your house into a home.  But if you know that you won’t be in the house long before you have to move, then these are a few things you may want to put off

Hot tubs: You’d be surprised how many potential buyers find them to be a little gross. And once a hot tub is installed, it's not an easy feature to remove from a deck or backyard.

Colored trim and textured walls: It seems like any potential homebuyer would see these features and know they can easily paint over them, but they also know that repainting trim is a huge job.  Textured walls also become a mess to sand down and remove. 

Too much landscaping: Of course you want your yard to look as nice as possible, but to a potential buyer, gorgeous, overdone landscaping screams high-maintenance.
