We’re happy as anybody that the U.S. housing market is surging back to life for the first time since late 2008. With residential construction finally up, and with prices in some housing markets finally rising again in value, many homeowners can now safely contemplate the day when they’ll actually be able to sell their homes for a sizable profit. There’s a long ways to go, to be sure, but it doesn’t feel “impossible” anymore.
With that spirit in mind, we thought we’d draw your attention to a blog entry we found particularly interesting. The whole argument of the blog is that you can greatly increase the value of your home by buying top-draw kitchen and other household appliances. When prospective buyers tour a potential residence, one of the first things they look at is how well-furnished is the kitchen with grade-A hardware. The better the refrigerator, the better the dishwasher; the likelier it becomes that the prospective customer will go ahead and make the down-payment. As the blogger writes, and rightly so, “You can have lesser-quality cabinets… but if buyers see that you have high-end appliances, they assume that you’ve done a really nice renovation.” In the home selling section of their website, Century 21 Real Estate readily concurs: “The kitchen is often the room that buyers gravitate towards first, and an updated kitchen can help sell your home. You don’t have to remodel your kitchen to give it a new look. Updating your appliances to the current standard and replacing cabinet doors and hardware can make a big impact at a relatively low cost.”
