I think your timeline plays a role, and look for incentives. If you put the house on the market at the price you want / REALTOR recommends - See if you get bites without the windows. Todays' housing market is insane for sellers.

If you decide to get windows, try to get incentive and MAKE SURE YOUR WARRANTY TRANSFERS. You could go through all of the hassle to only have a warranty for the short period you are there - Thus limiting the appeal for buyers anyway..

The hard thing about either removing or painting paneling is that it is so "final".

Personally, I like many of the lighter colored, high-quality paneled walls that I have seen.

But I've studied it as completely as I can and, as a Realtor, I am stuck with the facts. There are exceptions of course, even "miracles" but if you want to sell your house as quickly as possible at the highest possible price, remove the paneling and replace it with drywall if it's in the entry or main living area. It's really rather inexpensive if you are able to do it yourself. At the least, paint it.

But if it is in a basement, is a lighter color and is pretty nice quality, it might not hurt the sale too much. It still won't be a plus, though.

You should approach all home improvement projects with the question "How much delight will *I* get from this upgrade?" First and foremost, you should appreciate the item you choose to upgrade. If you're not crazy about granite in the bathroom -- and it sounds like it's not a priority for you -- then don't worry about it. I agree that the granite in the kitchen has excellent resale value (plus it allows you to roll out dough sooo easily...). For the bathroom? Not so much. Good luck. ... more

thanks for the responses. i was just curious specifically about the marlboro area. i've been hearing other communities such as rumson fair haven etc have been selling. and i know the marlboro market of $800k and lower is doing well. i just checked out homes listed for sales from 950k + and it seems like the homes on the MLS have been on the market a long time, some for 180 + days. as for supply and demand, if you have 20 + buyers come thru your house and there are about 15 comparable homes, and there are no offers made on any of the homes, what happened to these buyers? do they take a long time to make the decision? is interest rates rising causing the refrain? as real estate agents showing $1M homes do you screen these buyers to make sure the are qualified? ... more

The good news is hardwood is like jeans, it pretty much goes with all colors. I think a shade in the realm of a light maple would work best. It will also work well with grays and all the bright pops of color we are all painting our houses these days. Staying light, fresh and neutral is always the best way to go!

Best of luck Steve,
