For those of you who getting ready to remodel your kitchen, read the snippet of article below to assist. As noted, the kitchen is an essential piece of your real estate. Whether you are fixing it to list it or just to keep it, remember that people look at the kitchen as the hub of the home. Your real estate agent, if you are listing it, will look at the triangle affect of your kitchen.

From the Bob Hogue school of real estate, agents will be looking for key factors in your kitchen like location, counter, counter space and storage, service triangle and appliances.
“The location of the kitchen is an important factor, based on its convenience to dining areas and accessibility for unloading groceries. Usually the market will not accept a kitchen with inadequate counter and storage space. The sales associate calculates the food service triangle by drawing straight lines connecting refrigerator, range, and sink. Most consumer polls show that the total length of the three lines combined should be greater than 12 feet but should not exceed 22 feet. Appliances represent a sizable portion of the home’s cost, and their age and condition are important.”
