Upgrading Your Kitchen Sells The Home

It is often said that home buyers may love the neighborhood, love the bedrooms, but it is the kitchen that sells the house.  If your home is more than 5 years old or your kitchen has not been updated in more than 5 years, here are some easy suggestions on how to improve it without breaking the bank.  If you are looking to sell your home soon, you will want to consider all or some of these ideas:

  1. The average home has over 50 square feet of countertops.  This is a lot of surfaces that a home buyer sees when they look at your house.  If your counters are anything other than a natural stone (like marble or granite-which is timeless), consider replacing them with updated material.  Depending upon the price of your home, you may need to consider spending the extra money on a solid surface like stone, Corian, or Silestone.
  2. Replacing your dated white appliances with black or stainless will help your kitchen stand out and shine.  While stainless steel appliances have dropped in price significantly in the last 5 years, they are still more expensive than black.  Install what you can afford within your budget and what is appropriate for the price of your home.  As an example, most Lake Minnetonka homes for sale will have stainless steel, while most Saint Paul homes will probably have black.
  3. The typical kitchen sink and kitchen faucet take considerable abuse over their lifetime.  Upgrade to more modern and fresh units.
  4. Cabinet hardware is an easy way to improve the look of your cabinets without replacing your cabinets.  Even the most non-handy homeowners can use a screwdriver to change them.  Look for hardware that has a hole pattern that matches your current handles so you do not need to drill new holes.

These easy upgrades to your kitchen can go a long way to helping you sell your home.
