Welcome to the Homes On The Sunshine Coast Blog
It's a lovely mild December morning, 7 degrees celcius as I drove in to the office at 7:00 AM this morning. If this is our cold winter, I think I like it! We have a busy weekend in front of us, full of open houses and meetings with clients. December may be the holiday month but it sure hasn't slowed down for us here at Homes On The Sunshine Coast.
Whether you are either buying or selling a home, kitchens and bathrooms are important rooms to pay attention to. Both rooms can have an impact on the value of a home and for a buyer can be the deciding factor as to whether to buy.
Replacing old counter tops for something more modern and new is an important option to consider. If you are a seller, you may want to upgrade before you sell. If you are a buyer, you have a choice to either buy a home that already has these upgrades or learn more about how you can do it yourself. Sellers generally recover about 75% of their cost of these upgrades in the sale price of their home.
Three of the most common types of counter top upgrades are Granite, Marble and Quartz.
Granite: is very popular, looks gorgeous, comes in a variety of looks and colours, and is a natural stone. Prices usually range from $100 to $140 per square foot installed
Marble: is beautiful but is a very porous stone. Some substances spilled on marble may cause staining. Prices usually range from $80 and upward per square foot installed
Quartz: is made by bonding quartz crystals into a solid slab and is a more durable product than granite. Prices usually range from $125 and upward per square foot installed
Whatever your product choice may be, an upgrade can be a deciding factor for a buyer choosing between homes.
