Great question. Unless you're selling your home "As Is" and adjusting your price accordingly, improvements are often necessary if you're preparing your home for resale. Be careful not to over-improve. Current market values for your areas will determine how much you can reasonably expect to sell your home for. Some repairs/improvements will add value to your home, but often times homeowners improve TOO much (financially speaking) and don't necessarily recoup the money they've put into upgrading their home whenever it's time to sell. Always consult a real estate professional to help you decide which improvements you should make.
