Features That SIZZLE or Sell A Home - PART 1

It's no secret that a kitchen is one of two rooms that sell a home.  In order for you to get top dollar and to sell quickly you're going to have to include features that sizzle or will help to sell the home.  For instance, solid surface countertops and recessed lighting are almost a standard now in today's market, and depending on the comparables in the neighbourhood, you might want to add such features as a pot filler, wine fridge, or a wall mounted flatscreen TV.  There are two features I want to talk about that if you do anything, these two things will definitely add more SIZZLE.  Those of course would be undercabinet lighting and a custom tile backsplash.  Lighting is already an important feature in the home, so adding undercabinet lighting is not only a great investment, but it's actually very cost efficient and economical to do.  Creating a custom tile backsplash sets your kitchen apart and makes it appear more high end and will get you a higher return.  Skip the 4 or 6 inch lip from the counter up the back wall, and go with the tile.
