How should it be handled?
Moving, should we replace the "old FIRST ever existing cabinets" with some decent, but not expensive cabinets & replace the carpet, old tile & 1/2 bath on the first floor with decent looking hardwood flooring,
NOTE: Old FIRST existing cabinets: Hinges are broke, no adjustable shelving or backs, they have the old wood divider in the double cabinets and double cabinets do not meet when they close, which makes it difficult to get pans etc in & out of cabinet and no handles.
All other parts of house have new bathroom cabinets, and shower, new interior doors, windows, closet doors etc. The entire first floor looks bad, and entire 2nd floor looks new.
OR leave the kitchen as is and lower the price of the house?
Houses in our area are going for $900,000. We feel many people who purchase a home at this level probably don't have the extra money to put in a kitchen when they move in and would prefer something that looks new and decent until they can afford to replace it with what they want. Please advise.
