If you want to sell your Los Angeles home for top dollar, you'll need to make it stand out in today's competitive market. A cabinet refacing project will dramatically change one key area of the home -- and provide a good payback on your remodeling investment.
Kitchen Cabinets Are Key to Kitchen DesignThe kitchen is often what sells a home, particularly in many Los Angeles neighborhoods, where cooking and entertaining are important hobbies. Cabinet refacing is an inexpensive remodeling project that boosts your home's value.
Cabinet Refacing An Affordable Remodeling ProjectInstead of spending $10,000 to $20,000 on new kitchen cabinets, try cabinet refacing for a fraction of that cost. Potential home buyers will notice the new kitchen cabinet styles and realize the home is in "move in" condition.
Cabinet Refacing Styles Update Any Los Angeles HomeWhile many real estate agents caution about spending too much money on updating your home for the market, it pays to do remodeling that will provide a good payback. Cabinet refacing, painting and cabinet hardware are among the popular choices. These projects can give any Los Angeles home a crisp, bright new face.
Cabinet Refacing Helps With Home MarketingCabinet refacing also is a smart move that can help market your home. Agents can show off the cabinet refacing and boast about a newly redesigned kitchen in their marketing literature. Anytime you can consider a kitchen remodeled or update, it helps boost your home's potential value in the Los Angeles market.
As you prepare to sell your home, focus first on the kitchen and bathrooms, as these are key focal points around the house. Newly refaced kitchen cabinets can make a big difference in the way your house shows in the marketplace.
