The 2 Rooms That Really Sell Homes

According to Trulia as quoted in Forbes, These Are The 2 Rooms That Really Sell Homes.  I can't disagree, but would offer an additional point:  Before taking it upon yourself to select your home repair and fix-up projects in advance of a sale, contact a knowledgeable Realtor to find out what really matters to buyers in your specific market.

It's nearly impossible for a homeowner to be objective in selecting what to change about their own home to make it appeal to today's buyer. Thus it's easy to overspend, or spend on the wrong things, or delay your sale unnecessarily while making the wrong upgrades!  -David
