Kitchen Remodeling For Resale

The Kitchen – A Big Factor

Kitchen & Bath Creations (KBC) has helped many homeowners create the kitchen of their dreams. Our clients take pride in their communities, and nothing adds more to the appeal of a community than a newly restored home, which is why we also enjoy partnering with savvy contractors and investors. Real estate investors do two important things—they invest in a community by purchasing and renovating a house. This leads to economic opportunity within the neighborhood as contractors and other vendors participate in the renovation and subsequent resale of the home.

Most real estate professionals would agree that after Location! Location! Location!—it’s the KITCHEN that sells a home. So, if you’re looking to maximize profit on your next real estate investment, a modern, attractive kitchen with a WOW factor is a must. A KBC designer can create a kitchen that’s both pleasing to the eye and easy on the pocketbook.  With the introduction of Choice Cabinet to the KBC kitchen cabinet product line, Maryland’s Cabinet Expert provides affordable elegance in kitchen cabinetry, less waiting, and value pricing.

A House Flipping Success Story

Andrew Lohmeyer of ALC Contractors, LLC has invested in the beautiful neighborhood of Furnace Hills in Westminster, Maryland. His real estate agent has a knack for spotting potential diamonds, and Andrew knows just how to make them shine. He works with a group of experts that believe in “doing it right the first time, with the highest quality craftsmanship and customer service.”

Here are some before and after pictures of one of Andrew’s latest “flips.” As you can see, the curb appeal has been enhanced to draw buyers into the home. Once inside, it was the kitchen that did the heavy lifting—turning heads with its modern open layout.

This home renovation positively touched a lot of lives and proved to be a “win-win” for all involved—the new homeowners were thrilled with their newly renovated home; neighbors are relieved to see Furnace Hills home values on the rise; the investor/contractor completed a quality renovation and turned a nice profit; and the real estate agent produced a sale in less than four days. Her testimonial speaks volumes:

“The kitchen is the hub of the home and buyers are looking for big kitchens with an open layout. They are also looking for updated kitchens and baths. Working with Andrew Lohmeyer was a pleasure; I have seen Andy’s work before, and he always goes the extra mile. He has a keen sense of what the market is looking for and really delivers a high-quality product.

The renovation at 700 Collier was quite spectacular. The first buyers who came to the open house put an offer on it that night. We had multiple offers and were under contract in four days.”

ALC Contractors, LLC was grateful to be a part of this process. They were happy with the outcome and glad they selected KBC as the kitchen cabinet vendor. Here is what Andrew Lohmeyer had to say regarding his decision to use Choice Cabinet. 

“We enjoyed working with KBC on this project. The quality and value of the cabinetry they provided was outstanding, and you just can’t beat the 3-day turnaround on the kitchen cabinet delivery. When doing a complete renovation it is crucial that materials come in timely and correct; KBC never lets us down.” —Andrew Lohmeyer, ALC Contractors, LLC
