Besides doing on-line searches, i.e. Zillow, Realtor.com, etc, it would appear that younger buyers are also spending considerable time absorbing cable tv shows.
A favorite appears to be the Home & Garden channel, which seems to have brainwashed potential buyers with the magic words GRANITE - STAINLESS - TILE.
An affordable home under $200,000, is not deemed livable unless it is move-in-ready, with a spectacular kitchen, hardwood or tile floors, and of course A LARGE OPEN FLOOR PLAN WITH THE KITCHEN HAVING GRANITE COUNTERTOPS, STAINLESS STEEL APPLIANCES AND THE LATEST DECORATOR COLOR TILE FLOOR!
Sooo should we prepare our sellers for this new wave of buyer expectations? The average cost of these renovations are approximately $40,000
Are new kitchens the answer?
