Will my estimated market value go up if I repair my property?
Not necessarily. Good maintenance will help retain the market value of your property. Generally, your estimated market value will not be increased for individual minor repairs such as those that listed below.
- Replacing water heater
- Repairing or replacing roof
- Repairing porches or steps
- Repairing original siding
- Painting/decorating
- Replacing plumbing or electrical fixtures

However, a combination of several of these items could result in an increase in your estimated market value.
