5 Tips to Help Up Your Destin Home Value06/19/2018Eric Ramsey Selling a home in Destin can be a process. But if you’re thinking about putting your Destin home up for sale in the near future, there are some projects of different sizes that you can plan to both up your home resale value, and to make it more attractive to possible buyers. These are a few of the best ways to up your Destin home resale value. Put In New Flooring “New floors” is one of the most common features on listings for a good reason. No matter what kind of flooring it is, from hardwood to laminate to carpet, new flooring improves walkthrough appeal 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 installing some cheaper plush carpet or vinyl flooring that can make a big impact without hurting your wallet too much. If you’re in your home for the long haul but you know that you’ll sell it someday, think about installing hardwood flooring or natural tile, which will last generations and can make a great impact on your home’s value. Improve Your Lighting When you hear about lighting, most people start thinking about interior lighting. Though installing high quality or stylish light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a good plan, don’t forget to pay attention to how you can make use of natural light inside. Making use of natural light can make your space seem more spacious, brighter, and more comfortable. Besides, potential buyers are more likely to look at your house at daytime, when sunlight 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 Destin are a perfect choice, as they let you adjust the angle that the light comes through your windows. Spruce Up The Little Things Getting shiny new appliances, millwork, and other big projects might help a listing catch more eyes, but you can get your money to go farther by focusing on smaller details in your home. Get new faucets in your bathroom and kitchen. Install new 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 smaller projects can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of bigger projects. Maximize Storage Space “Space” is the main word here. All the closets, number of rooms, and square footage in the world won’t appeal to potential buyers if they’re too full to appreciate. Get more space in your closets by using space-saving racks, clear out rooms leaving only the bare necessities, and keep extra 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 when taking a look at your home, chances are they’re not going to remember it fondly when coming to a decision. The easiest way to make guests comfortable is to dial up 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 decrease the workload on yourself and your HVAC system by insulating your home. An insulating 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.
