  1. I feel like the labels of the two columns should be changed? Otherwise, one can never recoup the costs of any reno project?


    • That’s the whole point of the article Olga. People have false beliefs from renovation shows for how much they are going to recoup for their renovations. You don’t “gain value” due to your spending. You simply lose less based off of the type of renovation you have done.
