I agree.

Oak arch panel doors with brass hardware.

Brass hanging lamp

Synthetic counters.

The kitchen has a 90s vibe to it.

What did he subtract from the value as compared to the comps he used?

This seems like a very relative analysis. If your kitchen was in certain parts of Chicago, it would be considered luxurious, and in other neighborhoods, yeah, you are a bit dated.

Isn't it a shame that a countertop made of stone has turned homesellers and appraisers and the whole American buying public into religious freaks for a kitchen with stone counters and stainless appliances despite the fact that there is no quality difference between the alternative.

 And if you are after style, many an aesthete could argue that 'vintage' appliances, cabinets and counters (refurbished and energy compliant) have far more style and character then the overpriced mayhem that has swept American kitchens.

If a listing is limited to a Twit size length, half to all of the characters will be used to describe the kitchen upgrades, ignoring every other component of the home. No windows, no yard, no problem cause we have granite granite granite.

I'm sorry your appraiser insulted you. He probably has inch and three quarter granite counters (and something else too) and the GE Proline stainless appliance series with 42inch cherry cabinets. He was talked out of keeping his perfectly functioning older kitchen and now is spreading his misery onto others!

I have to agree with Seth.  It depends on the comparable market.

Oak was once the rage,  It is considered less desirable now. Formica is the least desirable counter top material.

If the homes in your price range have remodeled kitchens in the last few years then by comparison it is old.  It has more to do with what you are offering for the price.

I don't understand how HGTV can have 24 hours a day, 7 day a week kitchen makeovers and someone not know if their kitchen is appealing or not. 

If your house is priced right, this kitchen is fabulous because I can afford to make it over.  If your house is priced the same as the the one with the new cabinets, granite counters and SS appliances, then it's not.

and - what's your question?

I see you have a stainless steel microwave, range and fridge, so you probably had to replace the appliances in the past few years.....so...just how old are the cabinets?

25 yrs old would be my guess.
