Interview several Brokers in your area to get an opinion on what is needed to the home to improve the home. Also get estimates from different contractors on the work you want to do to the home.
The most value of increase are a modern kitchen with upgraded appliances and upgraded cabinets and counter tops,. Hardwood floors also bring some value to the home.
Remodeled bathrooms also bring value to the home along with modern light fixtures through out the home.
One other potential increase in value would a enlarge master bedroom and master bath and walk in closet if possible.
Also new outside paint and maybe some new dual pane windows.
These are just a couple ideas for increasing the value of your home.
