5 Projects to Increase Your Phoenix Home Value06/19/2018Greg Arnett Selling a house in Phoenix can be a process. But if you’re planning on trying to sell your Phoenix home in the near future, there are a number of projects of different sizes that you can plan to both increase your home’s value, and to make it stand out more to possible buyers. These are a few of the most effective ways to increase your Phoenix home resale value. Put In New Flooring “New flooring” is one of the most common features on listings for home sales. Regardless what style of flooring it is, from wood to tile to carpet, new flooring improves 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, think about installing some less expensive berber carpet or vinyl flooring that can make a big impact without breaking the bank. If you’ll stay with your current home for a while but you know that you’ll sell it someday, think about installing hardwood floors or natural tile, which will last for years on end and can make a big impact on your home’s value. Replace Your Lighting When you hear about lighting, most people start thinking about interior lighting. While 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 indoors. Using natural light can make your house seem larger, brighter, and cozier. Besides, potential buyers are more likely to look at your house at daytime, when sunlight will be more important than interior lighting. Try putting in window treatments that can make the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Phoenix are a nice choice, since they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that sunlight comes through your windows. Spruce Up The Little Things Getting fancy appliances, millwork, and other large-scale projects might help a listing stand out, but you might get a lot more bang for your buck by focusing on smaller details in your home. Put in new faucets in your bathroom and kitchen. Install new handles and knobs for all of your cabinets and drawers. Refinish the handrail and banister of your staircase. Put in new covers for your floor and ceiling vents. Each of these smaller projects can make a big visual impact at a fraction of the cost of bigger projects. Show Off More Storage Space “Space” is the operative word here. All the closets, extra rooms, and square footage in the world won’t appeal to potential buyers if they’re too full to appreciate. Make room in your closets with space-saving organizers, clear out rooms except for the bare essentials, and keep unwanted furniture or belongings into a storage unit or into your new home. Control The Temperature If prospective buyers aren’t comfortable when taking a look at your home, there’s not a good chance that they remember it fondly when making a decision. The easiest way to keep them comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t be afraid to make your air conditioner put in work during the summer and likewise with the heater during winter. You can decrease the stress on both you and your A/C and heater by doing more to insulate your space. An effective window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters can help reduce energy transfer through the glass by half, making the temperature in your home much easier to control.
