5 Tips to Help Up Your Nashville Home Resale Value06/19/2018Stefano Diotaiuti Selling a home in Nashville is an undertaking. But if you’re planning on trying to sell your Nashville home in the next few years, there are a number of projects both big and small that you can do to increase your home’s resale value. Below are a few of the most effective ways to increase your Nashville home resale value. Install New Flooring “New flooring” is one of the most commonly seen features on home listings for a reason. Regardless what kind of flooring it is, from wood to tile to carpet, new floors increase 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, try putting in some cheaper plush carpet or vinyl flooring that will make a big impact 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 installing hardwood flooring or natural tile, which will last generations and can make a big impact on your home’s value. Improve Your Lighting When you hear about lighting, most people start thinking about interior lighting. Although installing high quality or stylish light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a good plan, you should also pay attention to how you can manipulate natural light inside. Utilizing natural light will make your home look larger, brighter, and more comfortable. Additionally, you’re more likely to have a potential buyer tour during the day, when sunlight will play a bigger role than indoor lighting. Think about putting in window treatments that let your windows get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Nashville are a perfect choice, as they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that sunlight enters. Fix The Little Things Putting in brand-new appliances, millwork, and other large-scale projects can help a listing catch more eyes, but you might get a lot more bang for your buck by focusing on smaller details in your home. Get new faucets in your bathroom and kitchen. Get new handles and knobs for your drawers and cabinetry. Refinish your staircase banister and handrails. Get new vent covers for your ceiling and floor vents. Each of these tiny fixes can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of bigger projects. Increase Your Storage Space “Space” is the operative word here. All the closets, number of rooms, and square feet in the world won’t make a difference to potential buyers if they’re too full to appreciate. Arrange your closets with space-saving organizers, empty out rooms except for the bare essentials, and store nonessential furniture or belongings into a storage unit or into your new space. Control The Temperature If possible buyers don’t feel comfortable while walking through your home, chances are they’re not going to remember it fondly when making a decision. The easiest way to make sure guests are comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t hesitate to make your air conditioner put in work during the summer or the heater in winter. You can lessen the workload on both you and your A/C and heater by better insulating your home. An insulating window treatment like Polywood® plantation shutters can help block energy transfer through your windows by half, making the temperature in your home much easier to control.
