Should I update


People often ask if they should update their house if they're going to sell in the next few years.  I think yes but withing reason.  You don't want to make your house hugely more expensive than the other houses in your neighborhood.  A lot of people don't want to buy a house and then have to put a lot of work into it.  An updated house will always sell more quickly.  I think you can make some changes.  Update your kitchen and make it look beautiful without going crazy.  You can enjoy it for a few years and not lose when you sell.  Update a lot of the smaller things that make a difference but won't cost you an arm and a leg.  The light fixtures, the dook knobs.  If the carpets need to be replaced, you might want to put hardwood in.  It's not that much more and will make a big difference.  Of course, the biggest thing is to declutter and keep your house sparkling.
