The awesome kitchen features gleaming granite counters, stainless steel appliances and a double oven, center island with breakfast bar, large pantry with double glass doors and dining area off the kitchen. Plus, you'll love the wood floor in the loft area upstairs. The nicely-sized large master has two walk-in closets plus closet organizer, ceiling fan and recessed ceiling. The master bath has a jetted tub and separate shower and dual sinks. There's a double French door entry to the den/office/bedroom with ceiling fan. The secondary bedrooms are generously sized, too. Step outside to enjoy the paver stone patio with solid patio cover and two ceiling fans plus grassy area to play, then store your stuff in the two-car attached garage that has even more space, thanks to the tankless water heater.

The Difference that Professional Paint Makes
Experts say that selling your home is a process that should begin two months before listing. Among the steps suggested before listing are assessing your finances and creating a personal timeline; researching the local market; and assessing the condition of your home, making improvements where possible. It's this step where you can greatly improve the value of your home and help it sell faster, too. ALLBRIGHT 1-800-PAINTING reached out to top realtors in the Santa Clarita Valley to provide guidance. According to one, "The single best investment a homeowner can make is to paint. New paint just freshens up the property and helps to provide a better overall selling experience. Properties that have just received a fresh professional coat of paint are better received by the buyers. Neutral colors usually work best. However, it can really depend on the decor."
