England – 28/09/2011 – The secret to selling homes quickly for a good price is fitted kitchens.

Years ago the idea of spending money on a house to sell it would have been considered crazy, but in the current market that is exactly what many homeowners are doing. They are doing up their home in order to make it more attractive to potential buyers and more and more are going as far as having new fitted kitchens installed.

Any estate agent will tell you that kitchens and bathrooms are what sells houses. When potential buyers view a house they are looking at it and asking themselves, can I see myself living here? They are imagining themselves living in that home.

Why fitted kitchens sell houses quickly

Given that the kitchen is still the heart of many homes if a kitchen is scruffy or old-fashioned the wrong message is being sent out to any potential buyer. A kitchen needs to be clutter free, totally clean and have a crisp modern feel to appeal to most of today’s home buyers and fitted kitchens are certainly all of those things.

Fortunately, not all fitted kitchens are expensive to buy and have installed. Shopping around for a bargain or waiting for the sales is all that is necessary to find cheap fitted kitchens. Even older fitted kitchens can be spruced up to make a home more appealing to potential buyers. New doors and worktops may be all it takes to turn a kitchen from yuck to wow. Simply adding an eating area, in the form of a breakfast bar, can be enough to transform a kitchen from a turn off to a turn on for potential buyers. Adding work and storage space with a new kitchen island is another trick that need not cost a fortune.

Many of the UK’s largest fitted kitchens suppliers such as www.omegaplc.co.uk have tailored their services to help homeowners refresh their existing fitted kitchens prior to putting their home on the market.  They also offer a fast service for those people who need a completely new fitted kitchens installed to enable them to market their home more effectively.
