Why Your Kitchen Is A Recipe To Sell!

With the return of Bake Off, the changing of the season's and darker evenings we naturally feel inclined to nest at home a little, get cooking, roasting and feeling more organised after the busy summer season.  

Dare we utter that it will "soon be Christmas?!" 

The kitchen is undoubtedly the hub of any household and is one of the top 5 items on a buyer's wish list.

Modern family life means it has to be a multi functional and durable room, used as much for eating and cooking, as homework, counselling and catching up.

A good size, plenty of cupboards, integrated appliances, oven space and room for eating are all highly desirable.

If you are selling your home take a subjective view at your kitchen using our wish list. How can you enhance it and present it in it's best possible light to a prospective purchaser?

Can you fit in a breakfast bar, some stools or a small table?

Do your small appliances match and fit your colour theme?

Think accessories, fresh tea towels, a nice wall clock, bottle of oil, cake tins, and fruit can all brighten up the look of your kitchen cheaply.

Is there anything cluttering the space up and making it seem smaller? Think excess amount of stuff on the sides, bins, toy's, laundry etc.

Are your bin's an unwanted focal point?

Is everything really clean, especially your oven!

Would a lick of paint freshen things up?

Are your tiles clean?

Are any pet items stashed out of the way?

When we come out to your home to do a market appraisal we are more than happy to give you our advice on how you can maximise the price you achieve.
