It looks loke nobody ever answered your question! Sales prices in Frankfort are increasing. Feel free to conact me to find out more about your specific house and what price it should fetch on the market.
I am not an agent, but I agree with the other two who have answered your question. I live in Illinois, and I, too, bought my current home about 20 years ago. I plan to put it on the market in another year or so, and I realistically expect that I'll get about 50% more than I bought it for. I certainly don't expect to double my money, and this is after spending about $60,000 in periodic upgrades over the years (kitchen, bath, siding, roof, concrete drive, etc.). That's the reality of home ownership - but it sure beats renting. Mike has offered some good advice about your assessment.... more

Best is subjective, therefore research schools and areas on your own; don't simply just entertain what other people think or say, another's opinion may not be anywhere near the best thing for you. Perhaps the links below may be of help...
When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.
My advice to you would be to hire a professional appraiser to appraise the value of the home. This is all they do and they will know the market value better then anyone else. They will give you the number that would best sell your home.... more
Mitchell hit the "nail on the head" as they say. I am very honest with my sellers, working with them to make sure that the home is ready to sell on day one.
Anything you can do to overcome an objection or better yet, not have something be one is my advice! Sure your home may have a half bath instead of a full bath, and that may be a deal-breaker, but then again maybe not. However if the house looks dirty, is cluttered with stuff making it look smaller than it is, they just look and then run to the next house.
Be ready to sell, and ready to move on to your next chapter!!
My two cents...
