There’s something special about being a homeowner in Auburn, Alabama. From the bustling college community, to the quaint, family-oriented neighborhoods, there’s so much in this town that makes it a great place to live.

Auburn has a small town feel, with a few big town advantages. With places like Tiger Town, South College Street and the downtown strip, Auburn has everything a homeowner may need, without the hassle of driving 30 minutes in traffic to get it. There are plenty of restaurants, grocery stores and boutiques all over town that will satisfy almost everyone’s needs.

The traffic isn’t terrible. Minus Auburn University football weekends, the town has relatively small amounts of traffic compared to big cities. It is easy to get where you need to go, and driving from one side of the city to another doesn’t take more than 30 minutes.


If you’re thinking about putting your home on the market, it is important that you do some renovations to make your home sell for top dollar. One of the biggest money makers in a home is the kitchen.

Most buyers will pay more for a move-in-ready home, so spending extra money on your kitchen renovation can help your home sell quickly or for the full asking price. Here are some ways you can renovate your kitchen to add resale value.

Appeal to buyers, not yourself. Don’t personalize your renovation too much. You want your home to appeal to many buyers to increase your chances of selling the home for full asking price. Do your research and see what people in your area want to see in a kitchen. Keep it simple, classy and perfect for potential buyers.

Kitchen remodels are some of the most requested home renovations, and it’s no wonder. The kitchen is the heart – and the hub – of the home and the perfect space to show off your personality in a high-functioning space.

Even slight modifications to your kitchen, like painting cabinets or installing new lights, can completely reinvigorate the room and give new life to your entire home. But be aware, even minor kitchen renovations can easily venture into disaster territory if not done right.
