Selling a home in Kingsport is an undertaking. But if you’re planning on trying to sell your Kingsport home in the next few years, there are some projects both big and small that you can work on to both increase your home resale value, and to make it more attractive to potential buyers.
Here are a few of the best ways to up your Kingsport home resale value.
Put In New Flooring
“New floors” is one of the most often-seen features on listings for a good reason. Regardless what kind of flooring it is, from wood to laminate to carpet, new floors increase your home’s appeal during a walkthrough and can help a home sell in less time.
If you’re trying to get your home on the market and sell quickly, think about putting in some less expensive plush carpet or vinyl flooring that can make a big impression without breaking the bank. 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 large impact on your home’s value.
Rethink Your Lighting
When thinking about lighting, most home sellers immediately think about interior lighting. Though putting in new 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 use natural light inside.
Using natural light will make your house look more spacious, brighter, and more livable. Besides, potential buyers are more likely to look at your home at daytime, when natural light will make a bigger impact than light fixtures.
Think about installing window treatments that help you get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Kingsport are a fantastic choice, because they let you adjust the angle that the light comes through your windows.
Fix The Little Things
Getting fancy appliances, cabinetry, and other big projects might help your home get noticed, but you can get your money to go farther by spending time on smaller details in your home.
Swap out the faucets in the bathroom and kitchen. Replace the handles and knobs for all of your cabinets and drawers. Restain your staircase banister and handrails. Put in new covers for your floor and ceiling vents. Any of these smaller 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, extra rooms, and square feet in the world won’t mean anything to potential buyers if they’re full and cluttered with your belongings.
Get more space in your closets by using space-saving organizers, empty out rooms leaving only the bare necessities, and move unwanted furniture or belongings into a short-term storage unit or into your new home.
Control The Temperature
If prospective buyers are too hot or cold while touring your home, they probably won’t 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 lessen the workload on yourself and your A/C and heater by insulating your home. An energy-efficient window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters can help reduce heat loss through your windows by up to 50%, making the temperature in your home much easier to control.
