In this market you will not get your money back out of the $5,000 investment, meaning you will not be able to receive an extra $5,000 for your property. I would say that it would make selling easier and happen faster with upgraded appliances, which could end up saving you money. Your subdivision in Sussex is about 20 years old so I would say that a lot of your neighbors have done upgrades to their homes as well. Which is your direct competition when it comes to selling. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact me. I am a specialist in the Sussex area.
Hope this helps,
