Quarantine has turned many of us into home cooks, and that means buyers are looking for luxe touches throughout the kitchen where they’re spending more time than ever.
“Most of today’s buyers are self-proclaimed foodies and expect a well-thought-out kitchen,” Isaacs says. “Sophisticated wine fridges, filtered water spouts, and pot fillers are becoming the norm nowadays.”
Busby agrees: “If you have space for a beverage or wine cooler, buyers love this added bonus.”
8. Give the kitchen a serious deep clean
Nothing turns buyers off quicker than a kitchen with the "yuck" factor: food stains, filthy fridges, and even junked-up baseboards.
“Keep it clean, bright, and shiny,” Whittaker says. “There are lots of gloss surfaces in a kitchen, and to see them dull, scratched, scuffed, or chipped is a turnoff to most buyers.”
A sparkling-clean oven is also nonnegotiable, Whittaker adds.
“No one wants to bake inside your gunky oven," he says. "Remember, if you want top dollar for your home, you need to sell it as if you have taken top-dollar care of it.”
