Would upgrading the Kitchen make it too nice for the neighborhood; would it be over-improved?
Would the amount you invest be dis-proportional to the Value of the house?
Would you do it "right" or cut corners?
Would you do it good taste, for the Buyer's taste, (Stainless Steel, not Black or Avocado appliances)?
Would you pull Permits, so that it doesn't come back on you?
Then the answer is, YES!
It will return between 80% and 150% of your investment. (That big variance is who's opinion you ask: I say 150%, but I did Kitchens & Baths for a living in a previous life.)
Good luck and may God bless
In my experience, no how, no way.
Here's the thing. The house almost always needs work done besides the kitchen. So the kitchen's done, what about the baths and the floors and the exterior paint and the roof and the driveway and the landscaping and the basement and the windows . . .
Even if the only thing the house truly needs is an updated kitchen, there's the utility value of the existing kitchen that's being thrown away in the dumpster. Unless there's been a fire, there's some value in those old cabinets and appliances.
You can get closer to making it worthwhile with a good architect / designer / contractor team, but I mean, really good.
So, Teresa, my answer is - no. Sight unseen, I call it a "No."
