Hi,How much should I spend renovating my Rowan St. House to NOT over spend for the area?

We're going to be selling our house in a little over a year.  I don't want to spend too much money in renovating the house and not be able to recoup our money at realsale.  How much do completely fixed up 3-2 bedroom single family homes sell for in the Portland area of Louisville?  We only paid 10K for it, but it wasn't even livable.

A current market analysis and possibly a short form appraisal would keep you in the $ range for the neighborhood. Do not get carried away!

A good Market Analysis of what has sold in your area in the last 6 months will help determine a sale price for your home. Once you know the approximate sale price, make a budget and stay within it.
First and foremost the renovation should make the home a safe place to live long term.  Make sure roof, structure, plumbing, mechanical and electrical systems are the priority in your budget.
Interior should be pleasant with a good workflow. Do not blow your budget on aesthetics.
You can't go wrong offering a good home at a fair price.

It depends really.  I'd carefully spend money in the bathrooms and kitchen.  [E-mail deleted by Zillow moderator.  Please see our Good Neighbor Policy for posting guidelines]
