should we remodel and sell?
« on: February 25, 2014, 02:08:00 PM »
We are two years away from retirement and our goal is to move to a smaller community and pay cash for a simple, Mustachian house where we can enjoy our retirement.  The 1600 sf house we have lived in for 15 years currently has $80K left on the mortgage and is valued at $380K. It is in a super HOT neighborhood where larger remodeled homes are selling for $600K and up. I have been thinking we could put about $100K into it by updating kitchen, refinishing wood floors, adding master suite and general cosmetic update and possibly come out much better than if we just sell as is. Thoughts?

I recommend talking to a real estate agent.  Find a good one and have them visit you.  Should be able to do that without signing any paperwork.  Even better, interview a few.  A good real estate agent should be able to guide you to get the best deal.
