Updated kitchens are a huge selling point for prospective buyers. Many people are willing to spend a little bit more on a home that is already equipped with their dream kitchen. So if you are looking to sell your home within the next few years, it makes sense to remodel your kitchen to appeal to future buyers. But what kinds of features do they look for? What investments show the best return? We explore those questions and more in this week’s blog.
Planning Your York Kitchen Remodel With Resale in Mind
Remodel for your neighborhood and price
One mistake many homeowners make is going totally overboard on a lavish kitchen in a home that will never be worth enough to see a solid return on their investment. In general, you want to spend between 6-10% of your home’s total value on your kitchen renovation in order to see a worthwhile return. If your home is located in a modest neighborhood with moderate home prices, make sure you are not sinking more money into your renovation than your home will ultimately be worth.
Talk to realtors
Real estate professionals who are familiar with the housing stock in your area will be your best resource when deciding on how to remodel. Ask them what features buyers are looking for and what they tend to steer clear from. They will be most up-to-date on current trends that will allow you to sell your home quickly once the remodel is done and they can give you a more realistic idea of how much you may want to invest in your York kitchen remodel.
Buyers are most attracted to spaces where they can envision themselves living. While it helps to inject some personality into your space, keeping major features neutral will ensure that it will appeal to the largest number of people. For things like floors, backsplashes, counters, and appliances, choose understated colors and materials over anything too showy or trendy. This ensures that many prospective buyers will be able to see themselves living in your space.
