A great looking kitchen is a key selling feature in a home. In fact, buyers will often linger there during a viewing, as they picture cooking family meals and hosting get-togethers with friends.
It’s no wonder that a well-staged kitchen can make your home significantly more appealing. Consider these suggestions:
1. Make it shine. This goes without saying. You want your kitchen to be shiny-clean when buyers see it.
2. Create space. Buyers want to see ample space in drawers and cupboards. Clear out anything that doesn’t need to be there and then neatly organize what’s left behind. Also, remove everything you can from countertops, including the toaster. Finally, remove notes, receipts and anything else attached to the fridge door.
3. Do a low-cost, high-impact upgrade. You don’t necessarily need to invest in a renovation to turn your kitchen into a showcase. Oftentimes, a minor upgrade will do. For example, replacing the sink may only cost a few hundred dollars but can have a big impact. Even replacing worn knobs on cupboards and drawers will improve the overall look.
Making your kitchen look great is almost always worth the effort. Buyers notice!
