It’s all ’bout that Kitchen, ’bout that Kitchen…
The kitchen has become the most obsessed-about and downright valuable room in real estate these days. We are obsessed with cooking shows, Farmers markets and being “Foodies”. Kitchens are fastly becoming the main gathering room for friends and family. In this fast paced world what better way to stay connected then to have all hands on deck in preparing a heart warming meal. Bringing fresh ideas to old tried and true recipes and encouraging kids and those who can’t even boil water to be apart of a delicious homemade meal. A great way to experiment with baking your first pie crust, learning to make Thai food and the quintessential use of herbs and spices in recipes.
Of all homes listed for sale on realtor.com®, 69% of them tout the kitchen as a selling point in their descriptions, compared to 49% that mention the bedrooms and 21% that mention the living room.
Homes that include a “killer kitchen” or “luxury kitchen,” as described by the sellers, sell 8% faster than similar-sized homes in the same ZIP code. And that’s why they’ve become a key part of renovation plans, home decor upgrades, and listings descriptions. Vive la cuisine!
