Is your house dated?

I just read an article on CNBC.com that stated “Granite is out, I hate to tell you!”  That was a bit of a surprise to me as I stil see granite in a lot of the new homes being constructed in Brevard County, Florida.

The article pointed out that man-made materials like Caesarstone (93% quartz) or Corian which are cheaper  and more durable are in!

Another change – stainless steel sinks out, ceramic is back!

There are obvious things that date your home like shag carpet, avocado green or harvest gold appliances, Formica counter tops, or linoleum flooring.  Then there are some not so obvious things.

When you are considering selling your home, check out the competition.  What updates have been done?  What do you need to do?  Is it worth the expense to add value when selling?

Want to know the latest materials and bells and whistles?  Check out some of the new construction models in your local area!
