You've heard it before: Kitchens sell houses. But if you're about to do a full remodel in the hopes of selling yours, think again. If you opt for a full kitchen renovation just before selling, statistics show you’ll only recoup 84% of the costs. So instead of enduring the dust, drama, and cost of a complete overhaul, give your kitchen a minor facelift for a fraction of the cost. Upgrade your old appliances to energy efficient models, reface your cabinet doors, and replace the hardware. These small changes will give your old kitchen a like-new appearance that will help it sell.
