This is the eternal real estate question! And, unfortunately, the answer is: it depends.
For example, if you’re on a tight budget and have to choose between a kitchen upgrade or structural fixes, repairs usually win over upgrades. Whether a remodel is worth it also depends on the time of year and what room you’re looking at upgrading. If you are thinking about remodeling, though, winter is a good time to do it. Business is usually slower, so you can often get a better price.
