When most people think of the value of their home, they think in terms of monetary value — in other words, how much a buyer would be willing to pay for it. But there’s more than one way to look at a home’s value. You should also think in terms of how much you value the time you spend there. A home is typically a person’s largest single investment. Unless you are embarking upon a home improvement project with the sole purpose of listing your house afterwards, you should look at your expected return on investment from both a monetary and an emotional point of view.
