Upgrade the kitchen.
Ask any real estate expert what the No. 1 upgrade with the greatest return is, and the answer will be the kitchen.
Do a mini-remodel. Change the paint. It sounds simple, but it works. You can also paint a faux-wood finish onto your cabinets. This looks just like cherry.
Add a splash of color with a new backsplash. New tile is attractive. Home improvement stores teach classes on this.
Go stainless steel. The cold feel of steel is a hot ticket item for buyers. Transition your appliances as they wear out and go with a similar metallic look in your light switches.
Make your kitchen rock with a rolling island.
Hang a pot rack with fresh new pots, pans and a hanging wine bottle holder. With the rolling island, your kitchen will catch every buyer's eye. You can take some of these things with you to your new home.
