5 Ways to Up Your Jacksonville Home Resale Value06/19/2018Kevin McCormack Getting a house sold in Jacksonville is a process. But if you’re thinking about putting your Jacksonville home on the market in the future, there are some projects both big and small that you can plan to make your home more attractive to potential buyers. We’ve collected a few of the most effective ways to increase your Jacksonville home value. Put In New Flooring “New flooring” is one of the most desireable features on listings for home sales. Regardless what kind of flooring it is, from wood to vinyl to carpet, new floors increase walkthrough appeal and can help a home sell more quickly. If you’re trying to get your home on the market and sell quickly, try putting in some less expensive plush carpet or LVT 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 putting in hardwood floors or natural tile, which lasts a lifetime but can make a huge impact on your resale value. Rethink Your Lighting When you hear about lighting, most people start thinking about interior lighting. While installing new or stylish light fixtures is a good plan, remember to pay attention to how you can manipulate natural light indoors. Using natural light can make your house seem more spacious, brighter, and more comfortable. Additionally, potential buyers are more likely to tour your house at daytime, when sunlight will be more important than light fixtures. Think about installing window treatments that let your windows get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Jacksonville are a great choice, as they let you adjust the angle that sunlight comes in. Replace The Little Things Installing shiny new appliances, millwork, and other large-scale jobs might help your home stand out, but you might get your money to go farther by spending time on your home’s small details. Replace the faucets in your kitchen and bathrooms. Replace the handles and knobs for all of your cabinets and drawers. Refinish the handrail and banister of your staircase. Replace the floor and ceiling vent covers. All of these smaller fixes can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of other projects. Maximize Storage Space “Space” is the operative word here. All the closets, extra rooms, and square footage in the world won’t make a difference to potential buyers if they’re cluttered. Organize your closets with space-saving organizers, clear out rooms except for the bare necessities, and keep nonessential furniture or belongings into a temporary storage unit or into your new house. Control The Temperature If possible buyers aren’t comfortable while touring your home, they probably won’t remember it fondly when coming to a decision. The simplest way to make sure guests are comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t be afraid to make your AC put in work during the summer or the furnace during winter. You can decrease the stress on yourself and your A/C and heater by doing more to insulate your space. An insulating window treatment like Polywood® plantation shutters can help block heat transfer through the glass by up to 50%, making the temperature in your home much easier to control.
