          How many homebuyers go to the stone yard to pick out their own granite for countertops?   None !   When you are rehabbing and want to achieve a high end look, check out lower-grade granite slabs when shopping for granite countertops.  Most people can't tell the difference between the high grade and lower grade granite after it's been installed. If you ask to see the lower grade, there's usually one that is nearly identical at a lower price.  You may find a similar look that a high priced Group D slab has in Group C for $2,000 to $3,000 less.  There's nothing inferior about the quality of a lower-grade stone, it's just where it came from. Here's a good tip: Look for alternatives from a South Dakota quarry instead of Brazil. Your buyers will be thrilled with the granite countertops and never know the difference.

Hope this helps.
