It's true, kitchens sell houses. Refacing is a great idea when putting your home on the market. You'll recoup the investment and make a profit too.

Cabinets To Go

That makes sense for low end properties, but often buyers seeking higher end homes prefer to never have to deal with a kitchen remodel and you can recover your investment easily with a new kitchen versus refacing. It's a decision people have to make for what they're property calls for! Either way, doing nothing is generally going to cost you some money!
