Hi folks! Hope everyone has their Valentine cards in the mail. It's the month of LOVE. Share that love.
The kitchen above is in an $800K new construction house. The builder is right in sync with what today's buyer prefers. Current shoppers prefer a white kitchen with quartz or marble countertops.
Remember all of the grumbling over wallpaper for selling? Now granite is taking the hit. Pinterest is flooded with design boards featuring all white kitchens. Busy granite countertops are passe for selling.
