As Kenny Rogers says, you’ve got to know when to hold ’em, know when to fold ’em, and the advice applies to more than just cards. Deciding if a renovation will be worth the investment come resale time can boil down to how long you plan to hold the property before selling, how long you’ll benefit from the use of your brand-new kitchen, or how many hours of enjoyment that screened-in porch will bring before it’s time to put it on the market.
