Do you live next door to a granite quarry in India circa 1930? Just delivery around here can cost $200.

Huge cost difference from buying granite @ $60/sf vs making concrete countertops for a couple hundred total.
Zero impact on resale unless you make a complete hash of it. A lot of buyers like the concrete more than "boring old granite". Quartz is now the preferred countertop.
