As we all know the kitchen is the main hub in a home and countertops set the tone for the entire space. And, when the time comes that you might want to sell your home the kitchen is the room that often makes or breaks a sale.
Consider how much return on investment (ROI) a kitchen-remodeling project can get you. Your ROI can also be influenced by a couple different factors such as where you live, whether that is North Carolina, Florida or New York and the type of remodel project. Research shows how much you can typically recoup on a renovation has a lot to do with how much you spend and what kind of renovations you choose. For example, the national average ROI for a major upscale kitchen remodel is almost 54%. That means you recoup about $68,000 after spending around $126,000. The average cost of a minor kitchen remodel is about $21,000, and the average amount recouped is $17,000. That’s an ROI of 81%. So in order to get the most out of your kitchen remodel you need to make sure you choose quality products that will appeal to the general public.
Natural stone countertops like granite is the perfect countertop option to go with, whether you plan to sell your home in a few months or ten years. Granite’s timeless appeal, durability, versatility, and potential to increase property value make it a great countertop option to consider during your kitchen remodel. No matter what the price range of your home, buyers love granite countertops. Granite countertops are one of the most sought after countertop materials for buyers. That desirability alone in the real estate market can directly increase a home’s market value during resale.
