Yes, she may, but it also depends on what your next buyer is looking for in a home and what the renovation on your mom's home is going to look like. If she's going to have a home with bedrooms and bathrooms and a breakfast nook then it's probably not a very typical home. Has your mom considered selling her home then purchases a new one with a master suite on the first floor? I'd be happy to assist your mom is she's in DFW.

RealtyTrac posts homes here that are in the earliest phases of foreclosure and not for sale. Until a bank completes the process and the home either gets sold at auction or is added to the banks inventory, it's not for sale.

Definitely ask a Realtor to help you analyze your options.

I've had success with marketing properties with 'choose your own finishes' statements. Letting buyers know the seller is willing to do some work before closing. It's great to have a contract in hand before committing the cash to the improvement.

BUT, it depends on your market, and an experienced local Realtor will be able to give you better specific advice.

Sally Grenier answered:
Keep in mind that most buyers will be getting a mortgage and their lender will order an appraisal. It has to appraise for the agreed upon sales price. A lender doesn't care about a home's historical value, which is pretty intangible and can be very subjective. This is why you really need to have some decent comps. ... more

I would call you city offices and ask them. They're going to know better than anyone who is responsible. If you stay on top of your gutter cleaning for your house, they should take care of the street.
