Granite Can Increase the Value of Your Home


Kitchen remodeling trends can come and go, making it hard to keep your home up to date with the most current trends. Luckily, you don’t have to. There are remodeling trends that seem to always be able to stand the test of time. Granite countertops are one of them.

The kitchen is the main hub in a home and countertops set the tone for the whole kitchen. At the end of day the kitchen is the room that often makes or breaks a sale.

Consider this, kitchen-remodeling projects typically return up to 70% of the cost of the remodel. That’s a pretty high return on investment if you choose the right materials. Making sure you choose quality products that will appeal to the general public is key.

Granite is the perfect countertop option to go with, whether you plan to sell your home in a few months or ten years. No matter what the price range of your home, buyers love granite countertops.

Granite countertops are one of the most sought after countertop materials for buyers. That desirability alone in the real estate market can directly increase a home’s market value during resale.

What’s not to love about granite after all?

  • It’s a natural product that is visually appealing.
  • It comes in a large range of colors and patterns.
  • It’s a very hard substance that won’t easily scratch.
  • It resists heat and can be resistant to stains if properly cared for.

According to Robert Measer, of Hunt Real Estate, granite can increase the value of your home by as much as 25 percent of the countertop’s retail value. Some mortgage lenders even tend to see granite as an indicator that a home is of good quality and worth investing in.

Granite’s timeless appeal, durability, versatility, and potential to increase property value make it a great countertop option to consider during your kitchen remodel.
