Thank you for your responses. I really appreciate the feedback. My house, a good size craftsman is one of those few houses situated on Highway 30 (urgh!). There are lots of trees.. Forest Park is literally our backyard! My husband and I are both city folks so the novelty of living in such lush greenery was what attracted us to this property but it is wearing off slowly but surely. We are in the process of starting to 'fix up' our property in order to sell soon. Generally what would be worth to fix up in order to add relevant value?
