Will a Granite Countertop Boost Your Home’s Market Value?

Kitchen Granite With Chairs

Are you considering new granite countertops for your Colorado Springs home? If so, you might wonder about the potential return on the work you’ll invest in your kitchen.

Whether—or how much—your new kitchen countertops boost the market value of your home, we know this: Countertops matter to buyers.

Kitchen countertops aren’t simply functional, as in decades past. Today, a granite, dolomite, or quartz countertop is expected in a desirable home or condo.

That said, let’s talk briefly about statistics.

A Full Kitchen Makeover is Costly

These days, the cost of a substantial, midrange kitchen renovation averages about $64,000.

The National Association of Realtors reports that more than half of real estate agents are urging home sellers to fully upgrade their kitchens.

Yet on average, less than 60% of the price of the complete overhaul comes back to the owner in a home sale.

A Countertop Upgrade Could be Your Perfect Alternative

You might not need to go on a renovation spree to sell your home. A seller’s confidence and ultimate success should be guided by the general state of most other homes in the same neighborhood.

If other homes for sale around yours have granite, marble or onyx, then you have a sensible reason to install a similar style of countertop in your own kitchen. Home buyers will see it the second they open the online gallery of photos your realtor displays.

Adding granite countertops, islands and service stations can bring extra shelf and storage space as well. These extras can certainly increase the appeal of your kitchen to buyers.

We Look Forward to Adding Value and Joy to Your Home

Custom stone countertops in Colorado Springs can be wise investments. But most of all, they bring joy and beauty to your kitchen.
