upgrading electrical service

We are getting ready to sell my mother's house since she has gone into an assisted living center. The house was built in the 1950's with 60 amp service. What is a ball park cost for such an upgrade and should we just sell the house and let the buyer do the upgrade?

I think it all depends upon where you live. For instance, I will charge between $600-$700 for a 100amp service in my area.This includes 35' of cable,10' bare #6 copper,metersocket,groundrod & related material.But as with anything there are variables that will add/subtract that figure such as the length of cable,additional circuitbreakers,etc. A typical 200amp service will cost around $1200-$1300. In PA. the contractor must supply the metersocket but in N.J it is supplied by the utility.
