So you have some money set aside and want to upgrade an area of your home. What should you start with? This all depends on the amount of money at your disposal and what key areas of your home need repair. If you have enough, and if the area looks dated, your kitchen is the best area to invest your money in preparation to sell your house. Most investments in modernizing a kitchen truly show in resale value. After that, you should look at the Master Bath and other bathrooms. Your flooring would be the next best option. The recommended way to start is to get your budget together and consult a trusted Contractor and Realtor in order to evaluate all your options.
