Top 6 Inexpensive Kitchen Upgrades for Your Lake Zoar Real Estate

Top 6 Inexpensive Kitchen Upgrades for Your Lake Zoar Real Estate


The kitchen is oftentimes used as a gathering area in most homes. Family and friends come together in this spot close to where meals and appetizers are being prepared. Indeed, it is a place where families spend significant amount of time. If you are planning on selling your Lake Zoar real estate, you might want to consider giving your kitchen a makeover before showing it to possible buyers. Read on for some ideas on how to convert your outdated kitchen without shelling out big bucks.

1. Replace old handles and pulls

One of the easiest and quickest updates is changing out cabinetry hardware. You may try using colorful handles and pulls or those with a brushed nickel finish. However, avoid using something too personal because they tend to get old fast.

2. Repaint cabinets

Consider painting your cabinets to give your kitchen a fresh look. Use colors that go well with many different materials and finishes. Citrus-like colors such as orange, yellow, and green look great in a kitchen.

3. Hang a pendant light

A stylish pendant light can easily become the focal point of your kitchen. Keep in mind that lighting is important in any room. Your kitchen’s decade-old light fixture will not impress potential buyers of your Lake Zoar home for sale. Look for inexpensive, hand-blown glass pendants on the market.

4. Place a rug

Adding a rug, especially in front of the sink, can make a huge difference. It does not only make your workstation more comfortable on your feet, it also adds a splash of color. They can also be useful if you want to cover any ugly flooring.

5. Add storage

If you lack upper cabinets but need more storage you can solve the problem by using simple shelves. You can easily install rustic wood shelves on metal brackets. They are cheap and provide functional display space. This additional storage will surely catch the attention of possible buyers of your Lake Zoar waterfront home.

6. Use chalkboard paint on the fridge

If you do not have budget for a new fridge, try covering that old beige one in chalkboard paint instead. This will give your fridge a fun and creative look. It can also be used to keep a running grocery list, menu ideas, or inspiring quotes.

Follow the given tips and improve the appearance of your kitchen. Your potential buyers will surely love its aesthetically pleasing and modern look.

6 Tips in Buying Candlewood Lake Properties as Second Home

6 Tips in Buying Candlewood Lake Properties as Second Home


Despite the slow housing market, many people are still buying a vacation home or an investment property. So if you are looking for Candlewood Lake and Lake Lillinonah properties as your second home or investment property, make sure to read the tips below to ensure a smart investment.

1. Avoid impulse buying

Make a thorough research before making a purchase. Don’t buy on a whim or you might find yourself with a second home you cannot afford or does not satisfy your needs. Tie up your likely expenses and consider other aspects before making that major financial move.

2. Scout the market

One of the most sensible way to start the search for Candlewood Lake real estate is to find a real estate agent who is familiar with the location. The expert can give you information about weather and traffic patterns which can help you evaluate the properties and the amenities.

3. Assess your needs and goals

Determine what type of second home suits your lifestyle. If it will be used as a weekend getaway, you should stay within a day’s drive from your primary home. If the property will be used as a retirement home someday, check the residence’s accessibility and the health care services nearby.

4. Prepare for the Tax Implications

Remember that you have to take care of both property taxes as second-home owner. If you are planning to rent out your Candlewood Lake home, you also have to consider the income tax. Make an advance planning to save yourself thousands of dollars a year.

5. Create a list of possible expenses

Make a list of expenses of managing two homes. Can you fit these expenses into your budget with a little extra to spare? If investing in a second home will leave you penniless, you may be better waiting off until you have paid off your first mortgage.

6. Protect your second home

Make sure to protect your second home. Surely you do not want your investment to go down the drain? Get a home inspection before purchasing so you will be aware of any possible problem or damage. Get a title insurance and a hazard insurance.

Follow these six steps to make a sensible decision about buying your second home. For more tips on buying or selling a home in Candlewood Lake, visit http://www.CandlewoodLakeCTRealEstate.com
