I agree with my colleagues, don't spend money on expensive upgrades because you more than likely will not get that money back when you sell. If you present your home slightly below market value to accomadate for it's location and present it as best as possible you should be able to sell it. Definitely focus on all the positives the home has to offer, there are alot of home buyers that love "old houses" for the many architectural features that newer or remodeled homes no longer have. It maybe best to hire a professional stager as well, this will increase the possiblity of buyers being able to envision themselves in your home despite the location. If you would like me to run some comparables for you I'd be more than happy to.
Best of Luck!

I to live in Montgomery County. I agree you should improve the property with the least amount of money spent. Do declutter, paint where needed, clean clean clean, spruce up the yard, paint the front door and porch if you have one. Al;so adding some inexpensive spring flowers for curb appeal. Talk up the good points...you are close to 422, 23, 29, 476, 76 for comuting purposes. Are you close to shopping, restaurants etc. Are they within walking distance? Also talk to the bar, they may want to expand or need more space for patron parking.
