5 Projects to Up Your Boise Home Value

June 19, 2018

Getting a house sold in Boise can be an undertaking. But if you’re thinking about putting your Boise home on the market in the 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.

Here are a few of the best ways to up your Boise home resale value.

Put In New Flooring

“New flooring” is one of the most common features on listings for a good reason. Regardless what kind 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 generations and can make a large impact on your resale value.

Replace Your Lighting

When thinking about lighting, most home sellers start thinking about light fixtures. Although putting in versatile or stylish light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a great idea, you should also pay attention to how you can use natural light in your home.

Using natural light will make your home seem more spacious, brighter, and cozier. Additionally, you’re more likely to have a potential buyer tour during the day, when sunlight will make a bigger impact 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 fantastic choice, because they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that the light comes in.

Replace The Little Things

Installing new appliances, cabinetry, and other big projects may 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. Restain 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.

Increase Your Storage Space

“Space” is the operative 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.

Get more space in your closets by using space-saving organizers, clear out rooms except for the bare necessities, and keep unnecessary furniture or belongings into a temporary storage unit or into your new home.

Control The Temperature

If potential buyers are too hot or cold while touring your home, they probably won’t 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 lessen the workload on both you and your HVAC system by better insulating your home. An energy-efficient window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters will help block energy transfer through your windows by up to 50%, making climate control in your home a breeze.
