    try getting a pool in the backyard (**with jacuzzi**), add more rooms and closet space. a fire place is always nice as well.

    How’s the bathroom?

    You may have upgraded to the tune of at least $ 100K

    DO YOU HAVE A BASMENT…SOMETIMES FINISHING AN UNFINISHED BASEMENT CAN ADD A LOT ON TO THE VALUE OF A HOME…….SOUNDS LIKE YOU’VE ALREADY RAISED YOUR VALUE BY WHAT YOU HAVE DONE

    What you’ve done has definitely increased the value of your home. How much is very dependent on your area. I suggest having an appraisal done. That is really the only way to tell. In some areas, spending $ 10K on improvements might increase the value by $ 20K and in other areas, it might increase it by $ 5K. Get an appraisal! Good job on the kitchen redo. Kitchen remodels will give you the greatest return on your investment.

    Kitchen & bathroom are the 2 things other than increasing the square footage that will add value.

    Paint & floorcoverings will make a house show better, but will not add value.

    What are they worth? Did you install top of the line stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops or average appliances and laminate countertops? Triple pane argon windows or cheap vinyl replacement windows? You did not give enough info for anyone to answer that part of your question.

    What else can you do to add value? Do you have gutters? Nice landscaping? Irrigation system? Security system? Double wide driveway? Most of those things will not increase the value so much as the curb appeal.

    kitchen, bathrooms and wood floors – those are the things buyers look first. you did a lot witch your house already , if your neighbor’s house(which look similar to yours) is worth $ 200,000 and after your “improvements” your house will not be worth$ 300,000
    try to check http://www.zillow.com for home evaluation- just for your info how much your house is worth and for how much houses in your area were sold.
