Should I upgrade my kitchen and bathrooms in order to get the price I need when I list my house? A neighbor did not get any visitors, had no upgades.
I would have a local real estate agent to come over and speak with you. The agent can recommend what to do in the home to sell it for the price you want. Best of Luck.

Who gets the earnest money if the $10 additional fee for due diligence was never paid to the seller?
