But it does amaze me how some people spend a fortune on new kitchen cabinets, appliances etc. But neglect to upgrade the plumbing, wiring or insulation etc. The stuff behind the walls that you do not see, but is needed for the better functioning of you investment.

Aside from that, and assuming you are not getting bargain basement pricing on the renovations, you should only consider doing renovations if you plan on being in the house and enjoying said renovation for some time. This is one of the main values of doing a renovation, for your own enjoyment. Although it is true that any renovations theoretically would increase the value of the home... in most cases you will not recoup the expense if you sell it right away.
Having said that, I will tell you that some renovation can increase salability of the home which is worth something as well. If you want to discuss this further, please contact me direct. Good luck!
