Selling a home in Charlotte is an undertaking. But if you’re thinking about trying to sell your Charlotte home in the near future, there are a number of projects both big and small that you can work on to up your home’s resale value.
Here are a few of the most effective ways to up your Charlotte home resale value.
Lay Down New Flooring
“New floors” is one of the most common features on home listings for a reason. Regardless what style of flooring it is, from hardwood to tile to carpet, new flooring improves your home’s appeal during a walkthrough and can help a listing move more quickly.
If you’re trying to get your home on the market and sell quickly, try putting in some cheaper berber carpet or vinyl flooring that can make a big impression without costing a fortune. If you’re comfortable in your home at the moment but you know that you’ll sell it down the road, think about installing hardwood floors or natural tile, which will last for years on end and can make a large impact on your resale value.
Replace Your Lighting
When talking about lighting, most home sellers start thinking about interior lighting. While putting in high quality or trendy light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a good idea, don’t forget to pay attention to how you can make use of natural light indoors.
Making use of natural light will make your house feel more spacious, brighter, and cozier. Additionally, potential buyers are more likely to tour your house during the day, when natural light will be a bigger player in how your home looks than interior lighting.
Think about putting in window treatments that help you get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Charlotte are a perfect choice, as they let you adjust the angle that sunlight enters.
Fix The Little Things
Installing new appliances, millwork, and other big jobs may help a listing catch more eyes, but you may get your money to go farther by focusing on smaller details in your home.
Replace the faucets in the bathroom and kitchen. Replace the handles and knobs for your drawers and cabinetry. Restain your staircase banister and handrails. Get new vent covers for your ceiling and floor vents. Any of these tiny fixes can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of other projects.
Increase Your Storage Space
“Space” is the main word here. All the closets, extra rooms, and square footage in the world won’t please potential buyers if they’re full and cluttered with your belongings.
Organize your closets by using space-saving organizers, clear out rooms except for the bare essentials, and store unnecessary furniture or belongings into a short-term storage unit or into your new house.
Control The Temperature
If prospective buyers don’t feel comfortable while walking through your home, chances are they’re not going to remember it fondly when making a decision. The easiest way to keep them comfortable is to crank your thermostat – don’t hesitate to make your air conditioner do a little extra work in the summer and likewise with the heater during winter.
You can lessen the stress on yourself and your A/C and heater by better insulating your home. An insulating window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters will help block heat loss through the glass by up to 50%, making the temperature in your home much easier to control.
