Where Integrity Meets Hard Work

Back to Blog
What's one of the most important rooms in your home? When it comes to
selling your property quickly, and for the best price, the answer is clearly the
kitchen. In fact, one of the most common explanations a particular buyer
gives for not making an offer is, "I liked the house, but I wasn't too keen on
the kitchen."
 
That doesn't mean you must do a major renovation. However, you should do what you can to make the kitchen as attractive as possibleto buyers.
 
Here are some ideas:
 
First, clear the countertops. Put away the toaster and other items. You want to make the entire countertop area seem as spacious as possible.
 
If the cabinetry is old, you can spruce it up by installing new knobs, handles
and other hardware. A fresh coat of paint on the walls and ceiling can also
make the kitchen look like it has had a major renovation – and it will only cost
you a few hundred dollars. According to an article on the website HDTV.com,
"The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting and new
cabinet hardware."
 
Replacing the countertops is a more expensive renovation, but it may be
worth it if the current counters are old and worn.

The garbage and recycling bins should be empty. Buyers will open cabinets so make sure items on shelves are neatly organized with the front labels facing forward.
 
 
There are many other ways to make the most important room in your home
look great to potential buyers. Call today for more ideas.
