5 Ways to Up Your Denver Home Value06/19/2018Gary Harding Selling a house in Denver can be a process. But if you’re thinking about trying to sell your Denver home in the next few years, there are some projects both big and small that you can work on to both increase your home’s value, and to make it stand out more to possible buyers. We’ve collected some of the best ways to up your Denver home resale value. Put In New Flooring “New flooring” is one of the most common features on home listings for a reason. Regardless what kind of floors they are, from wood to tile to carpet, new floors increase your home’s appeal during a walkthrough and can help a home sell more quickly. If you’re trying to add some interest to your home listing, try installing some less expensive berber carpet or LVT flooring that can make a big impression 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 lasts a lifetime and can make a great impact on your resale value. Rethink Your Lighting When talking about lighting, most homeowners immediately think about light fixtures. Although installing versatile or stylish light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a good idea, remember to pay attention to how you can use natural light in your home. Making use of natural light can make your house seem more spacious, brighter, and more comfortable. Besides, you’re more likely to have a potential buyer tour during the day, when natural light will be more important than interior lighting. Think about putting in window treatments that let your windows get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Denver are a perfect choice, as they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that the light pours in. Fix The Little Things Installing shiny new appliances, cabinets and drawers, and other big jobs might help your home stand out, but you might get a lot more bang for your buck by focusing on your home’s small details. Get new faucets in the bathroom and kitchen. Put in newer handles and knobs for all of your cabinets and drawers. Refinish your staircase banister and handrails. Get new vent covers for your ceiling and floor vents. Any of these low-cost fixes can make a big visual impact at a fraction of the cost of bigger projects. Maximize Storage Space “Space” is the big word here. All the closets, number of rooms, and square footage in the world won’t appeal to potential buyers if they’re filled with all your belongings. Make room in your closets by using space-saving racks, clear out rooms leaving only the bare essentials, and move nonessential furniture or belongings into a storage unit or into your new space. Control The Temperature If prospective buyers are too hot or cold while walking through your home, there’s not a good chance that they remember it fondly when coming to a decision. The simplest way to make sure guests are comfortable is to crank your thermostat – don’t be afraid to make your air conditioner do a little extra work in the summer or the heater in winter. You can lessen the stress on both you and your HVAC system by better insulating your home. An energy-efficient window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters will help reduce heat transfer through the glass by half, making climate control in your home a breeze.
