Should You Remodel Your Kitchen Before Listing Your Louisville Home For Sale?


By Family Realty, LLC

So you’re planning on remodeling the kitchen before listing your Louisville Home for Sale.

A kitchen remodel is an awesome investment to make since in 2015 we spend the most time in our kitchens, and buyers are looking for kitchens which serve many functions including: operating as a conversation area, study location, or gathering spaces.

In this post I will share with you what you can expect for your money when you remodel the kitchen in your Louisville Home.

$5,000 to $7,000 Budget

When you spend $5,000 to $7,000 dollars you will be able to make “some” minor cosmetic improvements to your kitchen like:

  • Granite counter tops ($50 to $100 per square foot)
  • Farm house kitchen sink ($465.02 Home Depot)
  • New wood flooring ($1.00 per square foot)
  • New kitchen lighting ($500 to $1,000).

DIY Kitchen Remodel Tips

Yes, you could spend $30,000 and get a total kitchen renovation but if you are on a budget you can do a lot more for your kitchen if you are willing to do some work yourself including:

  • Add a backsplash behind your oven.
  • Refinish or repaint your cabinets.
  • Add new knobs or handles to cabinet doors and drawers.
  • Paint one or more walls in your kitchen a bright color like: lime green or orange since this will also add color to your kitchen.

Don’t Choose Miss-Matched Appliances!

When doing most of the renovations to your kitchen you make you purchase the same style of appliances.

Example: All stainless steel, all white, or all black appliances because, although you can find discounted appliances almost anywhere, buyers respond more favorably to a kitchen with matching appliances.

This will also help you to sell your home at your chosen price without having to discount it because the buyer sees your kitchen and thinks: remodel.
