Kitchen Ideas for Home Sellers

Real Estate Sales Representative with

Sell House Fast - New Orleans LA: The kitchen is one area that experts agree on when it comes to where the buyers look the longest. They will spend a little time in the kitchen because that’s where the cooking, eating, and family socializing take place. A modern and attractive kitchen is essential to selling your house.

Kitchen Ideas for Home SellersTo create the best effect and impress your buyers, the countertop and the appliances will be where you want to concentrate your efforts. An attractive slab counter and stainless steel appliances will speak volumes to your potential buyers about the general condition of the whole house. A well kept and appointed kitchen gives one the automatic impression that the house is cared for and kept up to date. The basement can have spiders and exposed studs and beams with concrete floor and be poorly lit. But if the kitchen and baths are up to date, the rest will take care of itself. Buyers want a nice kitchen.

Granite countertops have made all the real estate news in the last several years. The idea of using granite originated with the fact that it gives a nice large slab, all in one piece. That can be accomplished with Corian, Silestone, concrete, marble, soapstone, and limestone as well. You can go with a less expensive alternative to laminate or tile by installing butcher block countertops. Butcher block can be sanded down and re-oiled for a brand new look after it has been used for a time. If there is already granite in your house, the newest trend is to tone down the shine by honing it to give it a matte finish. Shiny granite looks colder, while matte gives the room a toned down and warmer feel.

Appliances should be updated if they have seen better days or don’t look like today’s appliances. Stainless steel is quite popular with buyers. This is due to the look of the TV kitchens of the professional cooks, and not necessarily because they are better. Fingerprints are a problem with stainless, so if you are looking for something else, try purchasing panels to cover your appliances that match your cabinets. White appliances are nice in a country kitchen type setting, but black appliances are becoming yesterday’s news. Replacing your older appliances and countertops will cost you some money, but it is one of the best returns on your investment as far as home improvements are concerned.
