Will new kitchen counters alone help sell my house faster?I intend to sell within the next 3 months and am considering updating the kitchen. If I clean, repaint and update the hardware on the stock cabinets, should I replace the laminate counters? All are probably builder original, circa late 1980s. The cabinets are laminated particle board boxes with solid face-frames and doors, now painted white. The counter has a butcher-block laminate. I am considering new laminate counters in a granite pattern, but am wondering whether granite tile would be a better option. Would either of these options help sell the house or would they just be a waste of money?January 25 2011 - Virginia Beach0YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
