Unfortunately the square footage is not listed for this property, but I would be happy to schedule a showing for you, if you are not already working with a Realtor, so you can see the size and property.
Please feel free to contact me to discuss your search further.

Thank you,

This is going to shock you and my colleagues my disagree with me, but I would say that an updated kitchen can add about $100 more a month for rent. Let's run the numbers though: $5,500 expenditure /minimum 3 years (60 months) = $152.77 / month premium you need to make. Seven years makes it $65.48. Average of 5 years is $91.67.

Two: you also want to consider how much quicker it will rent. If it rents 1 month quicker and you collect an additional month's rent, than that immediately makes it all worth it.

If you allow me to, I could come by and run comps and give you the comps for current condition vs updated. Let me know.
