Countertop upgrade, Silestone or Granite
DD putting house on market early this spring (it WILL come, right? spring?)The house is five years old. It is in a mixed neighborhood with homes from the 1970s through to homes now under construction, but considered a nice subdivision built around a golf course.
In an informal conversation with her realtor, the realtor suggested Silestone. I have Silestone and love it, do not like all the speckles and movement,etc. of most granites. So I am not opposed to it, but I was surprised at her having said that.
Most new homes built around here have granite. We visited one of the box stores recently and it looks like she could do either surface for around the same price. At the store she expressed the same feelings I have about granite, and was leaning toward silestone.
Is this going to be a mistake here in Texas Hill Country to not do granite if she's going to the expense to upgrade? We have thought about doing the "allowance" thing, but we know some people can't imagine things well and want everything move-in ready.
