5 Ways to Up Your Colorado Springs Home Resale Value06/19/2018Gary Harding Selling a house in Colorado Springs is a process. But if you’re thinking about trying to sell your Colorado Springs home in the future, there are some projects of different sizes that you can plan to increase your home’s resale value. Below are some of the most effective ways to increase your Colorado Springs home resale value. Install New Flooring “New flooring” is one of the most often-seen features on home listings for a reason. Regardless what kind of flooring it is, from wood to laminate to carpet, new flooring improves walkthrough appeal and can help a home sell more quickly. If you’re trying to get your home on the market and sell quickly, think about installing some less expensive plush carpet or vinyl flooring that can make a big impression without costing a fortune. If you’re comfortable in your home at the moment but you know that you’ll sell it someday, think about putting in hardwood flooring or natural tile, which lasts a lifetime and can make a large impact on your resale value. Replace Your Lighting When talking about lighting, most homeowners start thinking about interior lighting. Though putting in high quality or stylish light fixtures is a great plan, remember to pay attention to how you can make use of natural light in your home. Making use of natural light can make your house seem bigger, brighter, and cozier. Additionally, potential buyers are more likely to tour your house during the day, when natural light will be more important than interior lighting. Think about installing window treatments that help you get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Colorado Springs are a nice choice, as they let you adjust the angle that sunlight enters. Replace The Little Things Installing fancy appliances, cabinets and drawers, and other large-scale jobs may help your home get noticed, but you can get your money to go farther by focusing on smaller details in your home. Swap out the faucets in your 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. Each of these low-cost fixes can make a big visual impact at a fraction of the cost of bigger projects. Maximize Storage Space “Space” is the big word here. All the closets, number of rooms, and square footage in the world won’t mean anything to potential buyers if they’re cluttered. Make room in your closets by using space-saving organizers, clear out rooms leaving only the bare necessities, and store unnecessary furniture or belongings into a short-term storage unit or into your new home. Control The Temperature If possible buyers aren’t comfortable while walking through your home, there’s not a good chance that they remember it fondly when coming to a decision. The easiest way to keep them comfortable is to crank your thermostat – don’t be afraid to make your air conditioner put in work during the summer or the heater during winter. You can decrease the workload on yourself and your A/C and heater by better insulating your home. An insulating window treatment like Polywood® plantation shutters can help reduce heat loss through the glass by up to 50%, making it a lot easier to control the temperature in your home.
