Unfortunately, trailers only go down in value. Any trailer over 20 years old has pretty much loss all of it's value no matter how nice you fix it up. You will probably not recoup most of the money you put in to improving your home.

I don't know if you have had an opportunity to speak with a Realtor yet, but there are several items they could help you with. A Realtor would be able to tell you what properties have sold recently in the Hinsdale area, and approximately how long properties are staying on the market before they sell. Also, a Realtor would be able to give you a better understanding of what improvements would add resale value to your home, and what improvements will most likely not be recouped at the time of a sale. I would love to answer any questions that you may have. Feel free to send me an e-mail to set up a convenient time to discuss these things.

I have dozens and dozens of books.
One of my favorites is Jen Allen's SELL WITH SOUL.
I also like Carla Cross's Up & Running in 30 days (for new agents).
Dirk Zeller's books are recommended. "The Champion Real Estate Agent" is great.
I do like Keller's books especially SHIFT in these changing times.
