Thinking of Selling your Home? Why Your Kitchen and Cabinets are Bigger Factors than you Think

Spring is the season for home selling and buying, and if you’re thinking about selling – you already know there is probably some TLC your home needs to put it on the market. But did you know that the condition of your kitchen is a critical factor in your ability to sell your home at the price you seek?

According to Trulia: “The rooms buyers most closely inspect (and judge) in a house are the kitchen and master bath. These are the interior spaces where the most value can be added during a sale, so they need to look their best. A well-appointed kitchen will dramatically increase the value of your home, so it’s worth spicing up yours to grab buyer attention.”

So, take stock of your kitchen. What condition are the counters in? And how about your kitchen cabinetry? Is the paint color outdated or uninspiring? Are the surfaces run down from use? What about your bottom cabinets? They can take a lot of foot-traffic damage, resulting in nicks and scratches. What you see as normal “wear and tear”, a potential buyer will use to grade your home against another with a better kitchen.
