There is no doubt about it -- the
kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home for many
potential buyers. Serious sellers will take a close look at how they can make
their kitchen a real selling point when it is time to sell.
The kitchen does not need to be state-of-the-art
to be more saleable and attractive. The first step toward changing your kitchen's appeal is a
deep cleaning. This includes the walls, cabinetry (inside and out), flooring,
and appliances. Keep the counter-tops as clear as possible of small appliances
and trinkets. Consider low-cost fix ups which can make a big difference,
such as a coat of paint, fresh wallpaper (or removal), or new floor coverings. Be sure to keep
the kitchen shining when the house is being shown to buyers and other agents. Make sure to keep the inside of the refridgerator clean as well! You'll be rewarded for your efforts in the end!
