People often ask realtors where to start home updates. 

The answer? Start with the kitchen.


#1 - What used to be "mom's domain" is now shared territory with the advent of processed foods and quick meals.  Everyone in the house uses this space.

#2 - Advancements in appliance technology mean homeowners can prepare everything from continental  breakfasts to gourmet entrees, making time spent in this area greatly rewarding. 

#3 - The use of islands and snack bars create gathering spots for eating and socializing making the kitchen the "heart" of the home.

#4 - Open concept floor plans that connect dining and living areas allow residents, and guests, to interact in a more casual, multi-functional area.


Simple updates that increase returns include:

  • Refacing or replacing the cabinets

  • Adding granite or stone counters

  • Adding or updating tile back-splash

  • New appliances

  • Updated flooring

  • Fresh paint
