Today's buyers, regardless of the geographical area, are informed, intelligent, and expect to find value with their purchase of a home today.
Upon entering a home, buyers initially look around an come up with their first impression of the home but almost always gravitate to the kitchen area where family members spend a great deal of time(that goes far beyond meal time). For many, THIS is the most important area of the home.......
People expect to find up to an up to date kitchen work area that includes, appliances, lighting, flooring as well as cabinets and counter tops. Additionally, most buyers expect to find some sort of solid surface counter, corian, stone, granite etc. are among the most desirable.
Our recommendation is to not view this decision as one that increased the value of your home but one that will improve the overall sale ability of your home. Hopefully, by making the decision to do the right improvements, it will allow your home to make a statement that will attract buyers.
Best wishes with your decision.
