Five Kitchen Improvements to Make Before You List Your Home

Planning on selling your home this year?

Here are five kitchen improvements you can make  to help with resell!

kitchen improvements

  1. Instead of replacing your cabinets (which can be expensive) brighten up your kitchen by sanding and repainting your existing cabinets. White cabinets make a kitchen feel clean, modern and clutter free.
  2. If your kitchen feels outdated, replacing the hardware on the cabinets can make a big difference. And it’s easy!
  3. Add a “wow “ factor. Replace your faucet with a newer version with handy features. Or maybe add a pull out pantry, under-cabinet lighting, or new pendent lighting to stop potential buyers in their tracks (for the right reasons)!
  4. Freshen up the walls with a new coat of paint. Since you want your kitchen to feel as large as possible, stick with a light paint color to brighten up the space. Whites and neutrals are a safe choice.
  5. Declutter your counter tops, organize your pantry, and make the room as functional as possible. Potential buyers want to be able to envision themselves using the space. Make it easy for them to do so by keeping the kitchen as organized and streamlined as possible!

It IS possible to sell your home during the holidays!

As we all know, the holidays are fast approaching! But just because this is a busy time of year for most people, it doesn’t mean that it is impossible to sell your home during November and December. Thinking about putting your home on the market before the end of the year? It is possible to sell your home during the holidays!

Your home is probably at its most beautiful during the holidays. But if you want to make a good impression on potential buyers, keep your decorations to a minimum. When selling your home during any time of the year, you want to keep your rooms clutter-free and organized. A few tasteful holiday decorations can make your home feel cozy. Too many decorations on every surface can make your home appear small and messy.
