Yes you can see a return on the investment. This would depend on the original purchuse price. If you got a good realtor and they worked hard for you and got you the best posible price i would say maybe. If you bought the home as an investment and purchused the home 20%-25% under the value i would say yes.
We are currently in a buyers market. Which means highest quality for the best posible price. So the fact that you upgraded will make your home more competitive to SELL quickly!
Other factors is location and time. When you market your home is important and what has the location done in the last two years!
Also who did the upgrades, did you get a deal or did you over pay? $20,000 could be a dream kichen or a simple kichen, all depended on the deal you paid for.
I would have to look at your home go over a few things and go from there. if you want a real opinion!
