As a former realtor, you need to contact a few local realtors and have them visit your home and provide a written analysis of what your home will sell for with and without the renovations.

You can sell your home without doing any work BUT you will need to price your home much lower and the type of buyers who will show interest are investors. They will pay cash because they will spend money renovating, then reselling your home after the renovations. Expect to sell your home for a really low price.

If you spend money doing repairs and renovations, you will sell your home for a higher price BUT how high depends on what your local market is doing. This is why you need to contact some local realtors.

Rob, I know you have already been bombarded with offers of service to list your home and I have no doubt that there are many professionals representing our industry well in the listing services they offer.

My philosophy is simple and my purpose is clear. I am a Realtor because I love the sense of security my expertise brings to my clients and I thoroughly enjoy the achievement in closing a deal to their satisfaction. My dynamic understanding of the local market and valuation, aggressive marketing strategy, and my pro-active, solution-driven approach to negotiation are the traits that enable me to exceed the expectations of my clients. If you are not working with another agent, I invite you check out my profile and then give me a call.

When you re-finance with cash out to you, then your loan becomes what is called "cash-out" and some peculiar rules apply to it. Whenever you re-finance a cash-out, it stays a cash-out type of loan. This means that only certain lenders will be able to handle the transaction. So, once you do it, you'll be stuck with it for a long while. If you need more cash later, it's back to a lender who can do cash-outs to get it done. The transaction fees can mount up seriously. Just ask your lender about it before you decide on this.

HELOCs, on the other hand, have the advantage that you can pay them off, pay them down and make another withdrawal, withdraw a little and then some more later, and so on. That's a distinct advantage of lines of credit. However, a drawback is that the interest rate on the HELOC may vary. Maybe you get a great rate today and a year from now it's 9.9%. Still, you'll be happier with the limitations on HELOCs than on a credit card. Some HELOC even have a provision to convert them from variable to fixed rate. You can split the HELOC into more than one line and have a variable and a fixed, and so on. Also, the fees are extremely low.
