My mother turned on HGTV this afternoon while I was busy and watched Love It Or List It. I half payed attention. Anyways the couple spent 110k for renovations. With a possible selling price of $15k more. As I instantly said with negotiations bye, bye 15k on final selling price. I then said “while house is being renovated they cannot stay there so it will be $110 plus motel which would cost about 100 a night”.

My mother believes when you renovate the cost of going to a motel for the duration is factored into the cost. I believe that the motel costs are on top of the renovation costs.

Who is right?
