Kitchen facelift for resale in already hot market?
Would appreciate your opinions as the realtors we've talked with have been split.
We plan to put our house on the market in the next 3-6 months in a very hot market (low inventory, multiple offers typical, etc.). It will not have an issue selling, the question is whether a kitchen facelift would have a significant net positive on the selling price. We would like any additional $ to help defray the cost of our new place!
Currently have laminate counters, white appliances 10+ years old but still functioning, vinyl flooring generally in good shape but chipped in one small area. Proposed facelift would change the flooring to ??? (linoleum? There is wood in the rest of house), update appliances, possibly change counters to quartz.
Competition is scarce and gone quickly. Anecdotally, have heard from many friends/colleagues that they would have valued an already-upgraded kitchen at more than it probably actually would cost.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
