When buying a new home, what upgrades do you go for? In your opinion what holds the most value? e.g. Extra bedroom, upgrade kitchen, new appliance?
I find buyers generally want more than one bath and an updated kitchen. Depending on their budget, they'll take the extra bath over the updates!

Dot Chance answered:
Made an offer to an agent for a short sale. Stated that they would only send our offer to the bank if we paid buyer 10,000 to move. What should we do?
If that is so, that agent would be committing fraud. The seller cannot benefit in any way from the sale UNLESS they are receiving funds from a governmentprogram or from their lender.
