Buyers Want an Updated Kitchen

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Most home sellers are cognizant that a home has to show well in order to get a fast sale for the most money.

Little things like de-cluttering can go a long way, but what about major renovations? What types of home improvement projects will reap the most rewards in a resale?

When it comes to major renovations, kitchens and baths are the consistent leaders for returns. Of note, industry figures of $1.25 returned for each dollar invested in those areas. Today’s buyers do not have the time to fix dated rooms, so an updated kitchen and bath will result in a faster sale.

What are buyers are attracted to?  They want is a clean, Pottery Barn interior with hardwood floors and updated cabinetry and appliances.
 
But, you don’t have to break the bank. There are many ways to make small kitchen updates that just change the facade. Cabinetry by Kenneth C. Lewis is a company that specializes in keeping the existing kitchen cabinetry and changing out the doors for a new look.

Also, make sure you watch your budget so the cost of improvements does not exceed the market standard for the Portsmouth, RI or the surrounding area.

Kitchen Remodeling on a Budget

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Kitchen and bathroom renovations top the list of improvements for increasing the value of a home. But this labor-intensive remodeling can get expensive.

Budget-minded homeowners are finding cheaper solutions in the $10,000 to $20,000 range by making do with existing appliances and fixtures, refinishing kitchen cabinets and shopping for bargains.

The cheapest and easiest part of a kitchen overhaul  is changing the countertops.

Planning Kitchen Remodeling?

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Kitchen remodeling gives homeowners one of the highest ROI, which ranges from 80 to 105% of the money invested in the remodeling project. There are many ways to renovate a kitchen that will allow for extra space as well as water and energy conservation.

The value of a home can increase dramatically in direct reflect of a well-planed kitchen Remodeling. Creative and appealing renovations will not only help to attract more potential buyers, it will effectively sell a house in a shorter period of time. Regardless of the size and budget set aside for kitchen remodeling, the worth of a fairly inexpensive and well-planned renovated kitchen is priceless.

There are many things to consider when starting a kitchen remodeling project.  Here are some Guidelines:

Setting a Realistic Kitchen Remodeling Budget-
Homeowners should start with a careful examination of their finances to come up with a realistic figure that they can afford to spend on a kitchen remodeling project. Then find an answer to this key question: are they going to stay in the home for five years or less? Then the kitchen renovation should be viewed as an investment on their home. If they are going to be there for a longer period of time, it’s essential to keep in mind their family needs and to consider what's going to give them the most satisfaction through the years to come.

Kitchen Cabinets-
The kitchen cabinets can be the most challenging part of kitchen remodeling and improvements. They project the greatest visual impact to the space, and as far as their cost they have the largest impact on the budget. But they don’t need to. There are other options for your kitchen cabinets to bring any kitchen to life.

Kitchen cabinet refinishing and refacing is an inexpensive option that leaves you with cabinets that look new and eye catching. What is the best part? You are not stuck with a price tag that leaves you skimping in other areas. Refinishing and refacing cabinets is significantly less than buying new cabinets and no one, not even you, will know the difference.

Choosing the right layout-
Choosing the layout of the room is crucial in making a beautiful, practical and feasible kitchen design. Through years of experience, regardless of the size of the kitchen, any expert in home remodeling will know how to utilize the space to achieve the maximum storage and prep area.

The basic "Island" or "kitchen triangle" is a tried and trendy design that not only adds to storage space, also allows for optimum flow and performance in a kitchen layout. But it’s important to keep the set budget in mind when thinking of the kitchen layout, as changing the existing layout may require changes to the pluming and ventilation system which can add much more to the cost of the kitchen remodeling.

Home Renovations Spending Tops New Construction

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, September 20, 2012

Home makeovers have never been more popular. Spending on remodeling has topped new construction for the first time nationwide.

Many people are buying homes for the first time that have older kitchens. These homes need renovation work. The home is in the right price range, and the layout works, so new homeowners are doing the work to make the home right.

This is not uncommon. More people are opting for home remodeling rather than building new than ever before.

A lot of people love where they live, and they don't want to build, they don't want to move. So, it gives you that option of staying in the school district, getting that fresh new look, and working with the space that you have.

Remodeling can give a home an updated feeling, and keeps the resale value up. And an easier, less expensive way to update a kitchen is by using the old cabinets rather than buying new. Kitchen cabinet refacing and refinishing is a better, greener way to rehab an old kitchen.

With a new kitchen and new flooring and paint, homeowners can have the home they were looking for.

Many homeowners find remodeling to be an easier investment than moving in a housing market that hasn’t quite bounced back yet.
