A new or updated kitchen can be very attractive to homebuyers. One of the first questions a buyer will ask is “What condition is the kitchen?” and then they ask about bathrooms, master bedroom suite and the back yard. Improving a kitchen will help to increase the value of your house and increase chances of selling before other properties; especially those houses without updates.
On average, a kitchen renovation can cost 10-25% of your home’s value but can have a return on investment of 75-100%. Not only will your home look marvelous, you will notice the many benefits instantly!
When looking for a kitchen, the majority of people prefer to see modern conveniences and styles because this not only improves the overall look of the house but makes the rooms more function as well. Especially in older homes, kitchen improvements tend to add value because it shows that while the home may have a vintage appeal and antique charm, it is not old fashioned. You will be surprised to notice how many times updated or renovated features are mentioned in real estate advertisements and listings. This is a great way to inform potential buyers that your house has a state of the art kitchen that will require little to no alteration.
Remodeling gives you the chance to reconfigure the space and storage to figure out a layout that meets your needs. Take the opportunity to switch up the shelving in your cabinets or install an island to give you more storage and countertop space to use. Figure out ways to accommodate your needs by installing a variety of shelving and storage systems to help keep your new kitchen organized.
This is also a great opportunity to upgrade cabinetry, lighting, faucets, appliances, etc. to increase not only the value of your house but overall safety as outdated appliances are more likely to malfunction.
