Update your home before selling gitta sells Should you update your kitchen before selling it? The short answer is yes! Along with the master suite and living room, the kitchen is one of the main focal points for homebuyers. Many view the kitchen as being the heart and soul of your home. This is the place where delicious meals are prepared, and family and friends come together to eat and socialize. An out-of-date kitchen can be an instant deal-breaker even if the potential buyer loves the rest of the home. I want to share with you tips on how to make sure your kitchen helps to seal the deal!

Upgraded Appliances

Installing new, modern appliances, is the quickest way to instantly elevate the appeal of your kitchen. Upgraded appliances not only look sharp and shiny but also have convenience features and are more energy-efficient than older models. One word of advice is to make sure that all of your appliances are the same color.

Refinished Cabinetry

It is hard to get past cabinetry that looks old and worn out, no matter how good the rest of the kitchen looks. Although you can buy new cabinetry, you do not necessarily have to. As long as the existing cabinets are structurally sound, you can simply refinish them for a brand-new look.


The right backsplash will make a kitchen sparkle. If your kitchen does not currently have a backsplash, it is a good idea to install a backsplash that compliments the space. If it looks old and outdated, consider replacing it with something a bit more modern and fresh.


Like cabinetry, it is hard for homebuyers to get past dingy, outdated countertops. Selecting clean and crisp countertops will do wonders for captivating the eye of potential buyers.
