Remodeling my current home/ need advice

Answer
The house was built 60 or more years ago and it is dated as such, when you are talking the bathrooms and kitchen. Therefore we are gutting two bathrooms and the kitchen and bringing both to modern day.

Remodeling my current home/ need advice
My house has been on the market for 6 months and no offers. I don't have to move by any means but was just trying to test the market since it was the first home I bought at 24 years old(now 40). I have an opportunity to do some major remodelling on my house and get it to where I would be happy not moving. My realtor is not the least bit happy because she says I would be putting way too much money into it and that I wouldn't get close to that money back for the market of my home. I told her maybe I won't sell when completed, but I am at least going to remodel it enough that I would be happy living here for decades if it doesn't sell down the road if I do list it again. Am I wrong in this thinking guys??

Question to the pros

Response
Are you serious?? Can I ask why besides location or is it all about location?? I've never been to LA but I am sure location is a part of the reasoning. I am the one who offered on the house by the way and would love to hear your thoughts and reasons. Very helpful and thanks for the response.

Question to the pros
What do you guys think of this house?? I made an offer on it for $82.5K last night(right in line with the comps) and just curious what the public thinks. I have two teenage daughters and the sq footage is great, plus new roof, siding,etc is great and give me peace of mind down the road. Just curious what you all think.http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/800-N-12th-St-Quincy-IL-62301/91321337_zpid/

Need some good advice from you pros
My house went on the market two weeks ago. I am looking to sell it and buy a better house. I am selling for the first time. I have been pre approved for a loan contingent on the selling of my house. The market in the price range I am looking in is bleak currently and I'm hoping it picks up soon. Anybody have any advice for this newbie regarding selling and buying at the same time??? I'm scared I'm gonna get a good offer on my house(which I want) before I find a place I like. I have two kids and am thinking I shouldn't accept an offer unless I have a house to buy. Is this the way to think??

Buying/Selling at the same time(Need some advice)
Second time home buyer, but first time seller in this process. My question is what if I haven't found a house to buy(not much on market at the moment that intrigues me), but I get an offer on my house?? I am leaning toward not accepting anything until I find something I like. What are the "rules" in this scenario?? I am just a tad bit nervouse because I have had some walk throughs at my house but the buyers market in my range is not the greatest at the moment.

Selling my house, still looking for another
Here is my situation: my house has been on the market for 2 weeks. We have an open house today. I have looked/ walked through approximately 10 houses and looked online also, but haven't found "the" house to upgrade to. This will be my second home purchase, but first one I'm selling. My question is this: what if I get an offer on my home that I like but haven't yet found one that fits me to buy??? How does that work??

Looking to buy house

Response
It has been on the market for 10 months. Originally listed at $99.5K, now down to 87.9K. Does that change your view of my offer of 79K??? Just curious if that changes anything or if I should just go with the 82.5 of my realtor??

Looking to buy house
Looking at a house listed at 87.9K with no central air. If I buy, I will install central air. I want to offer 79K and my realtor did comps and suggests 82.5K. My thinking is to offer 79K because of the no central air situation and to use the difference in the offer for the cost of this?? Is this thinking right?? Should I make this known to the seller as to why my offer is lower?? Just tossing this around in my head.

Need some help for making an initial offer on a house
Leaning toward a house that has been on the market for 9 months. Initially listed at $97K now down to $87.9K. They have agreed to accept a contract offer from me contigent on me selling my house, which is great. My realtor did some comps and suggests we offer 82.5K to start. I am leaning toward 79K(10% less than list). Should I tell my realtor to offer the 79K or go with what she suggests???
