How much should I invest in my house if I plan on selling it soon?
I have been in my house for almost 4 years. I have wanted to move out for a while. Lately I have been completing some projects and doing a bit of remodeling. I am thinking that maybe sometime this year I would like to move. There are some repairs that I know I want to do before I list it (like re-shingling the garage), however I'm not sure how much to invest on other things like repainting, carpeting, gardening etc. Is it worth it to make these improvements before I sell my house? Should I just wait and see what a realtor recommends? I don't know for sure when I will sell and want to be comfortable while I am there, but I don't know if it is worth the time and money to tailor the house to my desires if I am not going to be there for much longer.
