Improvements to add valueThere are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the tile need replacing... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But each thing impacts marketability differently. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.
