Kitchen Updates

Kitchen Updates

Because kitchens are a focal point for both homeowners and home buyers (and HGTV shows for that matter), they result in high returns on investment for sellers, happy buyers, and referrals for Realtors®. Updating a kitchen to attract buyers doesn’t always warrant a complete remodel. We’ll work with the homeowner and agent to determine the best level of updating to attract buyers and maximize profit.

The benefits of kitchen updates

Kitchens are the heart of the home. This means that they are (and always will be) a focal point for home buyers and homeowners alike. Pair the importance of kitchens with the variety of design trends over the course of history, and it’s no surprise that home sellers can profit significantly from making kitchen updates. Kitchen renovations are also in high demand for homeowners, especially new homeowners. 

Updating a kitchen doesn’t always mean ripping and replacing everything. To save time and money while still achieving a sleek, modern look, Curbio will frequently paint cabinets and swap hardware like we did in the photos below. Of course, we can handle a full remodel as well if that’s what’s necessary to achieve your home sale goals. 

Together, we’ll work with the real estate agent and homeowners to discuss options and comps to determine which kitchen updates are best to get a home sold for your target list price.
