Cost-Effective Kitchen Updates - Remerica Hometown Realtors

If you're planning to sell your home, your kitchen can make or break a sale. Updating it can help you sell your home faster and for more money. But one thing to remember is that it's not about how much you use to create a big impact, it's about the feeling potential buyers get when they set foot in your kitchen. With the right combination of creativity, elbow grease, and patience, you can give your kitchen a dramatic facelift without the huge price tag. Here are quick and inexpensive refreshers to revive your kitchen and attract potential buyers looking at Ann Arbor homes for sale.

  • Update Your Kitchen Cabinets
    If your cabinets are in good shape, but they look old and outdated, you have options that don't involve replacing them. Sanding, painting, or staining them can give you a complete set of new-looking cabinets for a few hundred bucks. While you're freshening up your kitchen cabinets, it may be time to rethink the hardware. Metals going modern in kitchen design include stainless steel, matte aluminum, copper, and brushed gold. Try swapping out old handles, knobs, drawer pulls, and range hood to create a dramatically different look.

Landscape Edging - Remerica Hometown Realtors

Everyone wants an edge over the competition. When it comes to home sales, that edge can be razor-thin or as wide as the sidewalk. As you prepare your Ann Arbor homes for sale, the following are some edging ideas that could close the deal when you put your home on the market. 

Creating Your Edge

Start by creating a defined path for the edge. You can do this using a rope, garden hose, or chalk line. You can make your line straight or give it a curvy twist, but whatever you do, you want the line to be smooth and even. Once the line is where you want it, it's time to make your cuts.

Buy a Home - Starting a Family - Remerica Hometown Realtors

Our REALTORS® love helping couples who are getting ready to start a family find the perfect home. There's something exciting about helping them explore Ann Arbor homes for sale and find the ideal place to begin this new phase of their lives. 

When young families are searching for a home, certain features become more important. Here are a few of the most desirable elements new families need.

  1. Family-Friendly Location
    Location is always critical when shopping for real estate, but, when you're starting a family, it matters in a different way. You'll want a home in a great school district and one that's near parks, playgrounds, and doctors' offices.

    You'll also want to consider whether there are wide sidewalks for pushing strollers. Most young families prefer a quiet neighborhood without a lot of traffic. In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, another important thing to consider is whether the home is located in a place where you can easily get delivery services.
