Navigating Real Estate Transactions

Your Kitchen And Your Home's Sale

If you are going to be selling your house, you'll want to make sure it is presented in a way that increases the chances of potential buyers falling in love with it. Of course, you want to take care of the yard to give the house fantastic curb appeal. You will also want to take care of easy repairs, update old fixtures and other items that can easily be taken care of, touch up paint, mend a broken fence, clean the house as much as possible, and minimize what you have in the house. However, most of all, you want to be sure you understand just how important the kitchen is. A stunning kitchen can sell that house. This is why you may want to discuss the possibility of doing some of the following to your kitchen with your realtor to see if they feel it would make a big difference:

Create more space in the kitchen when possible

If there is a way you can make your kitchen larger, you may want to consider doing so. Most people love to walk into a house and be welcomed by a spacious kitchen where they will have plenty of room to prepare meals and can even fit helpers in the kitchen with them. If there is an island, perhaps it can be moved out a few feet to instantly give the area more space. Or, there may be a small divider wall that is doing more harm than good. If it's not going to be too big of a job to remove that divider wall, it may be a great idea to do so in order to create a more open space. Local home contractors can help with this and more.

Put in more cabinets

If your kitchen is currently lacking in the amount of cabinets it has, then this can be a deterrent for some buyers who have a lot of cookware and dishes, as well as those with large families who tend to stockpile a lot of food. If you have a bare wall in the kitchen, that wall may be best served by installing more cabinets and counter space.

Put in a new sink

If your kitchen still has the same sink in it that you have been using for years, then you can help give the kitchen a face-lift by having a new and modern sink installed with a nice quality faucet. You also want to be sure there is a garbage disposal, which is an absolute must for some families.

Replace old appliances

If you have old appliances that don't even look like the modern and stylish ones of today, then replacing them with new ones can transform your kitchen from an average one to a spectacular one. Make sure you seriously consider your realtor's advice regarding what style and color to go with when it comes to choosing the new appliances. They are your best source to turn to since they know what is capturing the interest of buyers the most in today's market.
