San Diego Restaurant Week allows us at Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty to imagine creating our own restaurant-worthy meals in one of these stunning kitchens currently on the market in San Diego and North County.  Providing everything today’s home buyer wants, such as aesthetic design, function and storage, these well thought out kitchens are designed to impress.  Since this is the room that gets the most attention from potential buyers, and where they spend the most amount of time during their appointment, it’s important the kitchen gets extra attention from sellers.

Here are some suggestions to update your kitchen if you plan on selling in the near future:

  • It’s amazing what a new and improved kitchen faucet can do, therefore update features where needed. Install recessed lighting or sconces should your kitchen not receive enough natural light.  
  • Stainless steel appliances still make an impactful impression on buyers.  Why?  They look professional.
  • Countertops are another consideration that buyers consider and granite is still a popular choice, as is Corian, limestone, marble and soapstone.  
  • Dated cabinets?  Sometimes all it takes is to simply update the handles.
  • Keep kitchen spotlessly clean.  Sometimes all it takes is a little elbow grease and decluttering. Before a showing, clear the countertops of all appliances to show space and remove any paperwork or magnets from the refrigerator. For ideas on staging your kitchen, look in home magazines and discuss with your Realtor.
