It's difficult to say because time of the year, what your competition is, what the condition of the rest of the house is and of course, your location governs much of the value. However, it is always a good idea to upgrade if you can, as buyers today will be willing to spend more on a house that is "all done" rather than pay slightly less in the scheme of things (30 year mortgage).

I'm a Broker/Realtor in Clarkesville Georgia and I own an independent agency called Headwaters Realty, and my wife Jean is a certified real estate appraiser. You can learn more about our company and the areas of northeast Georgia we serve at www.landandmore.net.
Clarkesville is a rising star among the towns of Habersham County and is rapidly gaining name recognition due a great quality of life here and an abundance of outdoor recreation areas found just minutes away such as Lake Burton and Lake Rabun, the Soque and Chattahoochee Rivers, Tallulah Gorge, Tray Mountain Wilderness Area, Alpine Helen, Unicoi State Park and Anna Ruby Falls just to name a few. Clarkesville is ideally located about 75 miles from Atlanta and within two hours of the Great Smoky Mountains, Cherokee Casinos, and Asheville North Carolina.
We still very much have a small town feel that many people are seeking which is why you'll find real estate owned here by people from all over the United States. The pressures of the economic downturn have produced great opportunities for buying premium real estate at 10-year lows, so I encourage you to take a good look now at the Clarkesville area if you have been thinking about making a move to northeast Georgia.
Feel free to contact me at 706.499.0367 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
