Hello Rachel, maybe a few hundred bucks but it is going to cost more than that to replace them if they are not to the new buyers taste so, NO. Now in some cases where the house is of a dated time period and it was original replacement then, YES.

Are you looking to refinance and get some cash out to do things?

There is very little traffic here these days. Here is a bit of info from the cty's website.

May I suggest you call or e-mail the agent I use? He does a ton of work with rehabbers and is active in St. Louis City redevelopment efforts.

This is a question that requires the opinions of a few professionals. You can talk with a real estate broker as to which of your proposed improvements will yield the best result for your particular situation. Also, an architect to help you plan the space and a contractor to estimate today's costs to execute whichever plan you choose.

Good Luck!

If you are rehabbing to sell, St. Louis City has block grants. Which are 33% forgivable if you sell to low to median income homeowners. Go on HUD website and find the mortgage companies that work with HUD on these grants. They can tell you if funds are available. ... more
