How to Sell Your Condo and Buy a House: KITCHENS
The Kitchen is probably the most important room in any house. More than any other room, the kitchen will usually determine how you as a prospective buyer feel about a house you are thinking about buying. Unlike in most condos where kitchens are pretty much cookie-cutter from one to the next, no two kitchens are alike in Toronto houses.
Most people know a good kitchen when they see one. But like most things in real estate, itâ€™s the details that make all the difference. The best and highest quality kitchens are custom crafted for the house they are in, have a sensible and well thought through layout, and contain high quality materials that are built to last.
Every appliance manufacturer has tried to take advantage of the stainless steel trend by selling what I call â€˜fakeâ€™ stainless steel appliances. They are just black appliances with a stainless steel front on them or in some cases, itâ€™s just regular steel that is painted to look like stainless steel! Learn to spot the difference! You can buy a fridge, stove, & dishwasher in these imitation stainless steel appliances at future shop for around $1500. A real quality stainless fridge like this one will cost 3x that much. Donâ€™t be fooled by cheap imitations!
I wanted to show you the kitchen in this house in Cabbagetown because it has everything a GREAT kitchen should have. Check out the custom built, real wood cabinetry. Notice how the trim goes right up to the ceiling giving it that built-in look. The appliances are all high-end real stainless steel. Youâ€™ve also got great bonus features like a built-in desk area, under cabinet lighting, soft close drawers, beautiful granite counters and under mount sink. The list of premium features goes on and on. This kitchen was obviously built by a craftsman and will still look great in 20 years.
