Updating a fixer-upper requires a lot of patience, money and of course, time. But whether you are doing it for financial gains or just to create the perfect home for your family, it will all be worth the effort.
When you’re in control of a property’s updates, then you have the power to decide how it will be designed – from the colors and layout scheme right through to the finish.
With very few properties on the market that are move-in ready, buying a house that is still in need of some updates will give you flexibility you need to create your perfect home.
Create the home you want for the same amount of money you would have bought it
A fixer-upper is likely to be cheaper than a move-in ready house. On most streets in Atlanta, you find extended houses on the market or those with high standard finishes commanding a higher asking price.
Depending on the asking price and each property on sale, it will make more financial sense to buy an unmodernized house and update it, bringing the value up to the level of modernized homes in the area. This way you will be spending a similar amount in total, but getting the exact home you want.
Here are some countertop suggestions that will help you bring up the value of an older home in Atlanta
If you have plans to place your house on the market for sale in future, the dollar value of granite countertops combined with their sleek appeal will be a brilliant idea to spark the interest of potential buyers. Home buyers assume that buying a house is actually just a starter, but having granite countertops in the home will add a sense of unmatched elegance in any room.
Not only will granite kitchen countertops pass the eye-test for beauty and appeal, when you invest in new countertops made of granite, you will have an additional durability feature in your kitchen. The long-term durability of granite countertops makes them much more appealing to both the current homeowner and future home buyer.
Although you can definitely find relatively inexpensive engineered countertops such as laminate and solid surfaces, you have to always remember that the quality and durability of a countertop is reflected in its price. Quality quartz countertops are available at huge discounts from Artstone Granite & Marble. Get the same look of natural stone countertops with maximum durability. Just like it is with granite countertops, quartz countertops will last for a lifetime and even longer if you want them to.
Perhaps, among the best benefits of having quartz countertops in Atlanta is that they are non-porous. This will make it so much easier to keep them clean.
All you need to keep your quartz countertops clean is a sponge, soap and water.
Atlanta marble countertops
There are a lot of manmade materials that have been designed to look like marble, but they will never mimic the original marble. Marble is formed from sedimentary rocks and limestone through a natural heating process.
The veining visible in marble countertops is the impurities trapped in the rock as the Earth’s heat and pressure turns it into marble. This process makes each piece of marble have a unique appearance.
