Storage is something every buyer is looking for
Andrew Hicklin Real Estate
You’re not actually selling your house; you’re selling your kitchen – that’s how important it is. The benefits of remodeling your kitchen are endless, and the best part is, you’ll probably get 85% of your money back. It may cost a few thousand dollars to replace countertops, but a buyer may knock $10,000 off the asking price if your kitchen looks dated. The fastest, most inexpensive kitchen updates include painting cabinets and adding new cabinet hardware. Use a neutral-color paint so you can present buyers with a blank canvas where they can start envisioning their own style. If you have a little money to spend, buy one fancy stainless steel appliance. Why one? Because when people see one high-end appliance, they think all the rest are expensive too and it updates the kitchen.
On Your Team Helping You Sell Your Home For Top Dollar
Quick fixes before selling your home always pay off. Mammoth makeovers, on the other hand, not so much. You probably won’t get your money back if you do a huge improvement project before you put your house on the market. Instead, do updates that will pay off and get you top dollar. Get a new fresh coat of paint on the walls. Clean the curtains or go buy some inexpensive new ones. Replace door handles and cabinet hardware. Make sure closet doors are on track, fix leaky faucets and clean the grout.
