East Orlando Florida Real Estate - Kitchens Sell Houses!

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams classic Realty

It's no secret... KITCHENS SELL HOUSES. The kitchen is one of the most, if not THE most, popular rooms in a home... at least for most people. When I take buyers out to look at homes, the first place they tend to focus on is the kitchen. The kitchen is a central part of every home and buyers want to feel like the kitchen will make them "feel good."

If you're selling your home, I recommend placing great emphasis on your kitchen. While a newly-remodeled kitchen with tile floors, granite counters, cherry cabinets and stainless steel appliances is sure to impress anyone, many sellers can't afford to remodel their kitchen just to sell a home. So, if you don't have that "chef's kitchen" then work with what you have. ANY kitchen can look great.

Here are some tips that will help any kitchen show well:

  • Clean, clean, clean! Make sure your kitchen sparkles!
  • Turn on the lights and open the blinds (light makes the kitchen look larger and look its best)
  • Clear off the counters of most "stuff" - some small appliances or a knife block, for example, are OK to leave on the counter (clear the clutter)
  • Put the dishes in the dishwasher (or at least out of the sink)
  • Put some fresh flowers on the counter
  • Remove the magnets from the refrigerator (again, get rid of the clutter)
  • Put the boxes of food away (nothing on top of the frig or on the counters)
  • Set the table (a few nice place settings really creates a nice atmosphere)
Remember... the kitchen is key.
