Good information about the remodeling returns, although with the decreasing home values, I think home improvement to existing houses is becoming more of a selling feature instead of potential markup.

It does seem that in today's market some homes new remodels just to make them saleable.  Many homes in our neighborhood have nice appliances but the appliances tend to be 30+ years old and the kitchen cabinets in many cases seem to be the same.
