If you’re looking to sell your home in the near future and would like to increase its value, here’s a tip: invest in some granite countertops. Believe it or not, the rock will actually make your house more valuable.
When you do it, add the rock to a popular room in the home. By popular room, we mean a room that has the most foot traffic like kitchens. Kitchens are a home’s central hub, whether it be for cooking, entertaining, eating or hanging out. More importantly, a future buyer will be heavily interested in this area which is why it’s crucial to make this atmosphere as inviting as possible. Introducing the earthy granite tops into the equation will come a long way.
But how much value will granite really add to your home? The facts state that a kitchen renovation is expected to return 80-100% of its cost. Now you’re probably wondering why a renovation is worth it if you run the risk of not getting your money back in home value? The bottom line is not to install granite countertops if the only purpose is to add value right before putting your home on the market. It’s more about adding beauty that will pay off with a higher value.
Another reason why granite adds value is because of its unique design. No two slabs of granite are the same. Each contains a unique pattern that comes directly from the earth. It’s literally a piece of mother nature crafted into a countertop. They come in a variety of colors – white, granite, gray, black, tan.
Then there’s the durability feature. Granite is a scratch-resistant and heat-resistant rock that will last a lifetime as long as you properly care and seal it.
Take care of your granite and it will pay off in the long run, when you find yourself selling your home for way more than you bought it for.
