5 Projects to Up Your Boise Home Value06/19/2018Spencer Madsen Getting a house sold in Boise can be an undertaking. But if you’re thinking about trying to sell your Boise home in the near future, there are some projects both big and small that you can work on to both up your home resale value, and to make it more attractive to possible buyers. We’ve collected a few of the best ways to up your Boise home resale value. Install New Flooring “New flooring” is one of the most commonly seen features on listings for a good reason. Regardless what style of floors they are, from hardwood to tile to carpet, new flooring improves walkthrough appeal and can help a home sell quickly. If you’re trying to get your home on the market and sell quickly, try installing some less expensive berber carpet or LVT flooring that can make a big impact without costing a fortune. If you’ll stay with your current home for a while 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 huge impact on your resale value. Replace Your Lighting When thinking about lighting, most people start thinking about light fixtures. Although putting in high quality or stylish light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a great idea, don’t forget to pay attention to how you can manipulate natural light in your home. Utilizing natural light will make your home seem larger, brighter, and cozier. Also, potential buyers are more likely to walk through your house at daytime, when sunlight will play a bigger role than interior lighting. Think about installing window treatments that let your windows get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Boise are a great choice, as they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that the light enters. Fix The Little Things Installing brand-new appliances, cabinetry, and other big projects can help your house’s listing catch more eyes, but you can get a lot more bang for your buck by spending time on your home’s small details. Put in new faucets in the bathroom and kitchen. Install new 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. All of these low-cost fixes can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of other projects. Show Off More Storage Space “Space” is the main word here. All the closets, number of rooms, and square footage in the world won’t mean anything to 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 necessities, and keep extra furniture or belongings into a temporary storage unit or into your new house. Control The Temperature If potential buyers don’t feel comfortable while touring your home, chances are they’re not going to remember it fondly when making a decision. The simplest way to make guests comfortable is to crank your thermostat – don’t hesitate to make your AC do a little extra work in the summer or the furnace during winter. You can decrease the workload on both you and your HVAC system by insulating your home. An energy-efficient window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters will help block heat loss through your windows by up to 50%, making climate control in your home a breeze.
