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 both increase your home’s value, and to make it more attractive to potential buyers. 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 is a great 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, potential buyers are more likely to look at your home at daytime, 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 Smaller Details Putting in brand-new appliances, millwork, and other large-scale projects can help a listing catch more eyes, but you might get your money to go farther by focusing on smaller details in your home. Get new faucets in your bathroom and kitchen. Get 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. 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 are too hot or cold 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 yourself and your A/C and heater by doing more to insulate your space. An energy-efficient 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.
