Other, more traditional value-added home improvement options include:
--Bathroom remodels (mid-to-luxury upgrade) - typically have the highest return on investment.
--Kitchen remodels - minor kitchen upgrades (hardware, mid-range counter-top, painting/finishing) has the best return on investment as far as kitchens go. Full kitchen reno isn't too far behind but you don't get as much return due tot he hefty price tag associated with this project.
--Roofing - definitely in the top ten best ROI, believe it or not. Properties with new roofs are very attractive to home buyers.
Before you jump into any renovations, it's best to sit down with a RealtorÂ® to find out if it's actually necessary to tackle any of these long and pricey updates. Depending on your location and the market when you're ready to sell, you may find that demand is high enough to comfortably sell your property with little or no renovations.

From 100% to 60% here is the priority you should consider.
4. Back story
5. This is delicate....everything the woman TOUCHES must be one grade above the grade of the house. Beginning at the front door hardware to the kitchen facet.
6. Front yard landscaping.
9. Remediate obsolescence ($$$$$)
Now that the home is ready for prime time, engage all the senses. One in particular will move the potential buyer into your home.
Of course the right option for you depends on your situation, budget and resources. And of course you need to have completed the proper analysis. If you don't know the community ceiling you could easily end up with a serious bump on your head.
Best is success,
