Most buyers want to personalize their new home - starting with a basic, updated foundation is a huge plus. At any rate, you can enjoy the enhanced space while you market your home - and I believe that is a good goal!
If yes, then they will have received FULL value.
In reality, that is the measre of all home investments.
However, if you are flipping, then you are completely aware you have provided insufficant information for a 'investment' rationalization.
While I'm not sure of how you intend to finance your remodel, please be aware that there are many cost efficient financing options which would allow you to bypass having to liquidate your bank account. With the costs of quality renovations, it's always a smart idea to have all options on the table with regards to financing so you can make the most educated decision in your best interest. If you'd like to discuss the renovations in greater depth, along with weighing out payment options, I would welcome the opportunity to speak further about your upcoming project. I may be reached directly via phone or email; whichever is most convenient.
