When you price out new granite countertops on a home you plan to sell, you're naturally hoping that this improvement will make your house more appealing to buyers – and it most certainly will.
That said, how much value can you actually expect to add to your home with granite countertops?
When your home is on the upper end of the price scale, granite countertops are expected. A surprising number of buyers are perfectly willing to live with linoleum floors, for example, but they can't stand laminate countertops – and will immediately reject any home that doesn't have them. Stone countertops aren't the only deal-breaker around.
Granite countertops are often the difference between a lovely kitchen and a mediocre one, and the kitchen is one of the rooms buyers will look at with the most critical eye. Granite countertops more than pay for themselves by ensuring that buyers think favorably of what you have to offer.
One of the reasons buyers don't want to consider homes without granite countertops is that they don't want to invest the time or money to make that renovation themselves – partially because granite countertops are perceived as an extremely expensive and time-consuming investment.
Homebuyers will ensure the countertops are real granite and not granite imitations.
