What sells a home? One of the first things buyers do when they walk into a home is head for the kitchen. Some are looking for the latest updates, while others are more interested in classic charm. The kitchen is where people spend a lot of time and is an important part of a home.
For sellers needing to update their kitchen this can be a stressful project to tackle. Where do we start? Do we go modern, or try to keep the classic style? Once you figure that out, then you have to tackle the costs (appliances and granite arent cheap!). Below are three EASY ways you can give your kitchen a face lift without breaking the bank:
Update that hardware. Updating the hardware on your cabinets is an inexpensive and simple DIY project that really does make a big difference when looking at your kitchen. If you have dated knobs or handles for your cabinets (ceramic, brass, etc.) you can inexpensively update them to chrome or brushed nickel to give your cabinets that modern touch.
Touch up the cabinets. This is one of the bigger projects you will tackle in your kitchen. Replacing cabinets isnt cheap, and painting or refinishing can be a tedious job. However, if done right, makes a great impression on your visitors. Go for a neutral gray or white color if you choose to paint. If your floors are dark, go for a lighter cabinet color to create some contrast.
Let there be light! Light equals space and space equals more dollars when you sell your home. Updating the light fixtures in your kitchen can be simple and cost effective. No need to by the high end light fixtures, just as long as they match and are attractive (matching brush nickel light fixtures to your brush nickel handles is an easy win). If your lights are already updated, be sure you have bright LED bulbs in them so that they are being used to their full potential.

What sells a home? One of the first things buyers do when they walk in
"We interviewed several agents and were blown away by the presentation by Terry and her associate Matt Rota. It was apparent from the beginning that they were experts in marketing our home, not just listing and selling it. Their knowledge of the Frederick market was most impressive. Matt was with us all the way in terms of meeting with contractors for improvements that maximized the value of our home. Their stager, Shari was instrumental in showing off our home and her suggestions were invaluable. A strong social media presence, online tools and an open house resulted in several offers. Terry was patient with us when it came to sorting through the contracts and making sure we negotiated the offer that was best for us. Within a week we had a certified contract for more than our asking price with less than the usual amount of seller closing help. We also had a special issue with our solar panel lease, but with the help of their attorney we drafted language so that it was not a problem. Finally, closing was as smooth as we have ever had. We cannot recommend Terry and her team any more highly. If you are thinking of selling a home, CALL THEM IMMEDIATELY. You will not regret it."
