Is it Worth the Money I spend?
This is a good question. One thing you have to ask when doing a home improvement project is whether the money you put into your project is money well spent. The best answer to this is “Probably”. What you should expect from your investment is a “compounding” return. What is meant by this is typically, it will take 2 years to recoup 80-90% of the dollars you initially spend. Of course, the longer you stay in your home, the greater the return you will get on your investment dollar.
Where Should I Put My Money?

It is estimated that a simple kitchen remodel will return 92.9% on your investment if you chose to sell your home within the first year.
