I don't personally have a problem with that style. Especially if it's a cutie sitting in front of me in a sports arena. <G>

I currently have my house on the market.
It has custom built, 3/4 (not that chintzy 1/2" stuff ;-) plywood (thank goodness I didn't use solid wood...) red birch cabinets with all kinds of nifty storage thingamajigs built in. Top of the line Congoleum floor. Appliances that are higher end. It has a host of upgrades I've done over the years including: upgraded outlets, refinished hardwood floors, ceiling fans, a whole house fan (that people don't understand), 2 fireplaces (well, OK, they came with the original house), "large" landscaped yard, etc.
It doesn't have central air and is 1/2 a step above a starter home.
The lack of central air is a killer, even with lower asking price AND a CAC installation allowance built into the price. Earlier in the year I asked the realtor if I should go ahead and have it installed. Nah, don't bother in this hot market. The market's cooled a tad.
We also have a lot of extended families looking and this place really shouldn't suit them. Living in the basement (or, rather, sleeping) isn't something I'd want to do. 'Course, they can't afford the size home they really need.
***main point below in all this ramblin' ***
The folks in the market for this kind of house don't give a $hit about woodwork, custom cabinetry, etc.
'Nother guy just sold his house in DC, with all kinds of neat renovations for 57 grand above asking price (700K). Folks looking at that house asked about the various renovations and he spent quite a bit of time talking about them to several of the potential buyers.
***
My potential buyers'd rather have a semi trashed "grass" (or the potential for, once you reseed it) yard rather than a landscaped yard - because it's too much work.
Seems they're finding perfect homes elsewhere. How they define perfect is beyond me.
Given that, I'm debating.
I also bought a "new" place that's a custom built home from 1961. It's the drab sister in a pretty good (so far) neighborhood. The kitchen (and, mainly, exterior) needs renovation. e.g. Appliances from 1961. The custom built touches show in all kinds of places, where a tract builder just wouldn't have gone to the trouble. Most folks didn't even realize it was custom built.
The question arises, do I build new kitchen cabinets with solid cherry raised panel, cathedral style doors; build new ones in a more contemporary style (that's easier to build also) w/ply doors and nifty handles (style would seemingly better match the SS appliances); have someone build me the doors while I build the carcasses; go to Ikea and get some nice termite barf units?
Folks across the street seem to be ones that buy, upgrade, live for the required minimum 2 years, sell at a nice profit, move to next place. They just moved there (in fact, I'd bid on that house also and lost - thank goodness, after the fact). They're getting those nice Ikea cabinets. In red (which may actually look kinda cool).

once upon a time people were concerned more with enjoying the house they lived in than the overall profit margin obtained at resale.
If your intent is buying a house to sell for profit then I'd talk w/a local realtor about what the hot ticket items are for that market and do those. Even if that means not enjoying living in the place as much.
If your intent is to enjoy the house and place your mark on it with higher quality built-ins etc. then that is what you should do.
you won't find answers here....

Making a profit isn't a problem. I'd guess 2 months into the deal I could already sell it for more than I paid, enough to even recover my closing costs. Been to DC area lately?
Part of the issue is my putting in a whole lot of effort (that went way beyond kitchen cabinets) only to find that folks don't know the difference.
Yes, I've enjoyed it, but...
as to placing my mark - what mark if the next owner is gonna tear everything out to put some nice Ikea $shit?
I guess since this isn't my forever house (I hope) and maybe not even my domicile for more than a few years, the personal enjoyment aspect has to be balanced with the level of work and ensuing owner's potential appreciation to make it worthwhile to go thru with the effort.

[snip] My previous house had a large family room and a "formal" living room, the latter of which was never used. Maggy saw a photo of C.B.DeMille's library so I rebuilt it into a tudor style library with a vaulted ceiling, "walnut" bookcases, and the dark trim. We sold it to a Chinese gentleman who said the bookcases were bad feng shui. I volunteered to remove them free of charge. I now have two rooms of bookcases in my new house.

John,
That was mighty thoughtful of you to take on all of that bad feng shui so your buyer didn't have to deal with it. What a guy! :-)
