Merritt Island Home Buyer,
Since you are a home buyer let me suggest this approach to your value question. Of course, there is a great deal we do not know about this situation that makes the analysis structure a bit foggy. For instance, are you trying to reconcile tangible value asset of a home you wish to buy? Are you considering selling your existing home and do not want to spend money foolishly? Are you looking to achieve the greatest return on your investment without doing a total rip out? There is just so much we don't know including questions preceding mine..."what about the existing kitchen? Is it a user preference or it is beyond it's functional life?"
To get the greatest value from a home, marketers have known for decades it is the woman who buys the house. If you are thinking of preparing a home for sale, make everything the woman TOUCHES two grades above the price point expectation. Replace the cabinetry hardware. You need the "GOOD" delta facet. The hardware on the front door needs to be lavish! And don't even think about a scratch and dent. Your upgrades needs to VALIDATE the woman who is making the decision. How well you master this craft will be directly proportion to the value returned for your effort and money. Be aware. a gold plated, too-die-for Delta Facet will not disguise an obsolete kitchen.
There is just so much we do not know. The options are different when dealing with a $150K home as opposed to a $1.2M beachy home.
Best of success to you,
