Two of the biggest stressors for DIYers are projects that cost too much or
take too long. Unfortunately, there’s no sure way to guarantee that one or the
other (or both) won’t happen. But there is a lot you can do to minimize the
probability.
When budgeting, a big mistake DIYers make is not considering the
little things. For example, you might budget for drywall panels but
neglect to include the cost of nails, tape and plaster. It's easy to
overlook these small items thinking they won't add up to much of an
expense. But often they do. In fact, for many renovation projects, the
little things account for up to 20% of the cost.
Another expense that is often overlooked is taxes. When you find a

Imagine you're looking for a new home. You have a list of all the features you want, just like you would have a grocery shopping list. However, when you explore the homes currently on the market, none meets all your criteria.

What do you do?

You have a few good options. First, you can take a second look at your list. Does your new home need every single feature on it? Are there one or two features you can do without? For example, can you settle for a smaller kitchen assuming the property has everything else you want?

Often, buying a home that's close to perfect is perfect enough.

Second, consider what features you might be able to add to a home later, by way of a renovation or other improvement. If a property doesn't have a finished
