There's a site on Remodel online that provides estimates for the return on value
This should give you a real good idea…

If you're thinking of selling, condition yourself to think of the C's:
Clean -- and that includes getting rid of colors. it should not only look clean but also smell clean

De-Clutter -- if you're selling, then you're moving. So pack or give away what you won't need anymore

Color -- least expensive improvement is to repaint, preferably in neutral or muted colors (and that doesn't mean make the wall all white, either)

Curb Appeal -- buyers may look at the outside. Within seconds, they could decide if they want to go in or not.

Perhaps this will help…

Good luck!

Curb appeal, curb appeal, curb appeal. If your bathrooms are gorgeous, but the front looks like a war zone, well... you get the idea.

In general, home owners get the best return on investment for money spent on Kitchens & Bathrooms.
However, simple inexpensive improvements in the yard can result in significantly higher offers when selling. Contact me at your convenience for a no obligation consultation. 510-409-6946.
