Kitchens sell homes!


When it comes to home sales, I have watched as a buyer’s eyes glaze over when they feast (get the pun) their eyes on a beautiful kitchen. Kitchens really do sell homes.

Light is in and dark is out. But as long as it is lovely and the counters are clean, it will help a home sell.

If the beds aren’t made…it’s not great. But if the kitchen is a disaster, prepare to lower your price. PS: Have some good smells in your kitchen too.

What do Buyers Want?


Selling your home when inventory is low can still be difficult if you don’t have a few simple things.

  1. Paint a neutral color throughout your house
  2. Semi-updated kitchen. If the cabinets are OLD then paint them and put on fresh hardware. If possible, install fresh flooring and update appliances and counters. KITCHENS SELL HOMES.
  3. Staged to sell. The home has to look lovely, neat, and clean.
  4. Smell – you don’t need a million air fresheners but dogs or cigarettes can kill a deal quickly.

These items may cost a bit of money but paint is inexpensive and when done right can add a lot of value to your home.

Don’t miss out on a great selling season.

Original Decorating Ideas


I love it when people think “outside the box” and come up with an original kitchen that screams luxury. These green cabinets and shiplap siding are just the right mix for fun and elegance not to mention the upscale Wolf gas stove.
