Return on Investment is a phrase that quantifies how much an investment returns compared to what you spent on the investment.  For example, if a homeowner remodels a kitchen, and the home sells for a higher price (after covering remodeling costs), then they achieved a positive return on investment.  It is important to remember, though, that not all improvements guarantee additional profits. General guidelines suggest that you should not spend more than 20% of your home's value on an upgrade of the kitchen.  And beware of "trends" - these are the fashionable upgrades that are popular in the moment, but may not be practical in the long-term.  M
