Thinking About Selling Your Home? Tackle These Kitchen Upgrades First

When you list your home, you want to make sure you’re doing everything you can to ensure your property sells quickly and profitably—and that includes taking stock of your space and making any necessary improvements.

But when it comes to your kitchen, what improvements do you need to tackle before you list?

recent article from realtor.com outlined key kitchen improvements to make before selling your home, including:

  • Spruce up your cabinets. Cabinets play a huge role in the overall aesthetic of a kitchen. If your cabinets are looking a bit dated (but are generally in good shape), a fresh coat of paint in a neutral color, like soft white or greige, can make the kitchen feel brighter and more modern—both of which can draw in buyers.
  • Upgrade your light fixtures. Swapping out old, dated light fixtures for more modern, sophisticated fixtures is another quick (and affordable!) way to breathe new life into your kitchen—and make it more appealing to potential buyers.
  • Invest in a good dishwasher. An old, noisy dishwasher can be a major turnoff for potential buyers. If your dishwasher looks dated and is so loud you can hear it three rooms away, invest in a new (and quiet!) dishwasher before you list your home.

The Takeaway:

So, what does this mean for you? Your kitchen can play a large part in selling your home—so before you list, make sure you make any necessary improvement to make your kitchen as appealing as possible to potential buyers.
