5 Projects to Up Your Sacramento Home Resale Value06/19/2018Curtis Orton Selling a house in Sacramento can be a process. But if you’re planning on putting your Sacramento home up for sale in the next few years, there are some projects of different sizes that you can plan to make your listing stand out more to home buyers. These are some of the most effective ways to increase your Sacramento home resale value. Lay Down New Flooring “New floors” is one of the most often-seen features on listings for a good reason. Regardless what style of floors they are, from wood to tile to carpet, new flooring improves your home’s appeal during a walkthrough and can help a home sell quickly. If you’re trying to add some interest to your home listing, try putting in some less expensive berber carpet or vinyl flooring that will make a big impact without hurting your wallet too much. If you’re comfortable in your home at the moment but you know that you’ll sell it someday, think about putting in hardwood flooring or natural tile, which will last generations but can make a great impact on your resale value. Rethink Your Lighting When thinking about lighting, most home sellers start thinking about light fixtures. Though putting in new or trendy light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a good plan, remember to pay attention to how you can use natural light in your home. Utilizing natural light can make your house seem more spacious, brighter, and more comfortable. Besides, potential buyers are more likely to walk through your house at daytime, when sunlight will make a bigger impact than indoor lighting. Think about putting in window treatments that can make the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Sacramento are a great choice, since they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that the light comes in. Replace The Little Things Installing fancy appliances, cabinetry, and other large-scale items can help your home get noticed, but you may get a lot more bang for your buck by spending time on smaller details in your home. Put in new faucets in the kitchen and bathrooms. Put in newer handles and knobs for your drawers and cabinetry. Repolish your staircase banister and handrails. Replace the floor and ceiling vent covers. Each of these smaller fixes can make a big visual impact at a fraction of the cost of other projects. Maximize Storage Space “Space” is the operative word here. All the closets, extra rooms, and square footage in the world won’t mean anything to potential buyers if they’re full and cluttered with your belongings. Organize your closets by using space-saving organizers, empty out rooms except for the bare necessities, and keep unwanted furniture or belongings into a short-term storage unit or into your new house. Control The Temperature If possible buyers are too hot or cold when taking a look at your home, chances are they’re not going to remember it fondly when coming to a decision. The simplest way to make sure guests are comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t hesitate to make your AC do a little extra work in the summer or the furnace in winter. You can decrease the workload on both you and your A/C and heater by doing more to insulate your space. An energy-efficient window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters will help block heat transfer through the glass by half, making climate control in your home a breeze.
