Q: “Doc” Cavins, in this depressed housing market, do you think it is wise for us to invest in a new kitchen?

A: Great question! If you intend to live there long term, I believe you should do what you want.  Using the words of Hillary Clinton, “What difference does it make?” The improvement is for you. Remember, there is no renovation you can do for your home that will add more value than a tastefully designed kitchen. The market will get better.
