Upgrades That Pay Off
Real estate pros tell us that kitchens lead the list of spaces that make or break the sale of a home. If you plan to renovate your home before putting it on the market, take heart in the knowledge that although the kitchen will eat up a good portion of your budget, the result will be well worth it. The Home Gain National Home Improvement Survey for Sellers shows that upgrading your kitchen can yield as much as a 66% return on your investment.
If a top-to-bottom remodel is beyond your budget, no worries. Look no further than these five kitchen upgrades guaranteed to increase your home's resale value.
I love the lights and star shaped bulbs in this photo. Where can I find them??
@ cureton - the article really outlines the different steps. My recommendation is for you and your wife to assess your kitchen and make a list of things that need upgrading and prioritize them in order of need or importance. Then decide how much you can put towards your upgrades, whether initially or what you can set aside on a monthly basis. Some fixes can be done inexpensively while others may require you to save up. For example, if you cabinets are in good shape, painting them will be give it an instant facelift. Add some new hardware from your local home improvement store or if you have IKEA near you, there are lots of inexpensive options there. Just those two things alone will make a big difference. There are inexpensive pre-fab slab countertops available and for appliances, stay tuned for long weekend holiday sales or check out the outlets in your area. They usually carry items that have minor dings that does not change the functionality of the unit, but they can't sell it for full price. Good luck and have fun!
