It’s no secret that old, unattractive kitchens and bathrooms can be the deal breaker for potential home buyers and it is clear in the real estate business that a modern kitchen is the one feature above all others that could increase the resale value of the home by thousands of dollars. The Nationwide Building Society states that a new kitchen can increase the value of your home by 4%.
Once your client makes the decision to begin the remodeling process, let them know that kitchen upgrades typically return between 90% and 105% of the amount invested in terms of a home’s resale value; and can also provide a nicer place to live for the current owners.
Countertop surfaces are the part of a kitchen that can take a real beating over the years; for that reason, making the choice to re-do the countertops can revamp the entire look of a room. The task of choosing the right fabrication and color for this major investment may be a bit daunting at first, but achieving a balance of fashion and function is actually a lot easier than it seems.
