5 Low-Cost Kitchen Updates to Attract Buyers

Considered the heart of a home, the kitchen can be instrumental in selling a property. Many buyers prefer dwellings with modern kitchens, especially since it’s a room they’ll use every day and a place where they will entertain guests.

Attend open houses in the neighborhood to see how kitchens compare. If all the other homes have new appliances, your sellers will want to do the same or accept a lower price.

But a kitchen retrofit does not have to be extensive. A recent Realty Times article offers tips on attracting buyers with lower-cost kitchen upgrades.

Repaint in a neutral color
Eliminating clutter
Clean, clean, clean
Change light fixtures and hardware
Opt for less expensive granite
