Thinking about selling your home? If so, you might want to start thinking about investing in a granite countertop. This slab of Nature will boost the resale value of your home. But where to add the granite? The popular choice is that of the kitchen.
You want to select the room with the most foot traffic so the bathroom would be the second choice. The kitchen, however, is the central nucleus of the home where everyone in your inner circle will eventually walk through. Home buyers will hone in on the kitchen, knowing well enough that they would be spending time here. If the kitchen is modernized and inviting, a good price tag will be automatically set on the house. It will be hot on the market.
The unique patterns and natural, earthly designs of a granite countertop are universally loved and valued. But exactly how much value will be added? If you renovate your kitchen with this new addition, it is expected to return 80-100% of its cost. It is a risk, however. Not a guarantee. That’s why its important not to install granite with the sole purpose of adding value to your home right before selling your home. The idea here is to improve the beauty of your home and reap the benefit of added value when it’s time to sell your home. This upgrade isn’t for others. It’s for you.
Granite adds value because no two slabs of granite are the same. The stone comes in a plethora of shades and color and you can easily find a shade that matches the design of your room. Beyond the looks department, granite is impeccably durable. If you properly seal your countertop, you won’t have to worry about staining.
Your granite will last you many years to come. So whether you buy it with the intention of increasing the value of your home, or for your own personal enjoyment, either way, you won’t regret this stunning addition to your home.
