Ok, here's the $64,000 question. How much is enough when it comes to updating/fixing your home to place it on the active market?
Some folks go all in without regard for return on investment. Others do the bare minimum (lipstick on a pig).
The best thing to do is ask your trusted professional Realtor®. They will know what to advise you. Painting can be inexpensive but use neutral colors. Doing a complete kitchen update could be expensive and not bring you the increased value you were looking for.
Thus, the answer to the question is...it differs for every property. That's why you need to engage a professional Realtor® to guide you through the process so you maximize your return. I hope you enjoy the article below.
