Get Your Kitchen Cooking- Before You Sell!

kitchen, home, realty, renovation

In a buyer's market it can really pay to make necessary improvements before listing your home for sale. Even small projects can impress potential buyers, but be purposeful in your focus.

For around $100, you can install new cabinet knobs and drawer pulls in a wide range of styles for an instant update. Consider choosing classic styles that will appeal to a wide range of potential buyers.

Let the light shine by adding a variety of lighting such as under-cabinet fixtures, pendants over the island or recessed LED lights, or you can install a sleek new sink and faucet – either way you can make a big impact for about $1,000.

Although you may be attached to your avocado appliances, today’s buyers likely won’t appreciate the nostalgia. Buyers want new cook-tops, range and/or dishwashers all in matching stainless finishes. Although the $3,000 to $5,000 investment might seem steep, it will be worth the splurge when it comes to negotiating the sale.

Kitchens can make or break a sale, so carefully consider these home improvements that can work for almost any budget.
