If you’re selling your home, your best chance at cooking up a sale is in the kitchen.
For today’s home buyer, the kitchen is typically the most important room in the house — an area where form and function are equally important. Buyers view kitchens as an area that has many functions — preparing dinner, sharing meals, sorting mail, paying bills, and generally hanging out.
In fact, a recent survey by SieMatic Corp. revealed that 85 percent of respondents said the condition of a home’s kitchen is a major consideration when making a purchasing decision.
A major kitchen overhaul probably doesn’t make sense when you’re ready to sell. But you’ll want to do all you can to make your kitchen look its best. Some things you can do to make your kitchen shine include:
In summary, just use common sense in presenting your home in the best way possible. Just remember, because the kitchen can often make or break an offer, you’ll want plenty of light, a sense of order, and a room that is odor-free (other than the smell of cookies, of course).
Have a good one and let me know if you need anything.
