5 Tips to Help Increase Your San Diego Home Resale Value06/19/2018Tyson Williams Getting a house sold in San Diego can be a process. But if you’re planning on trying to sell your San Diego home in the near future, there are a number of projects both big and small that you can plan to make your listing stand out more to potential buyers. Here are a few of the most effective ways to up your San Diego home resale value. Install New Flooring “New flooring” is one of the most desireable features on listings for a good reason. No matter what kind of floors they are, from hardwood to laminate to carpet, new flooring improves walkthrough appeal and can help a listing move more quickly. If you’re trying to move your home quickly, try putting in some cheaper plush carpet or vinyl flooring that will make a big impression without breaking the bank. If you’ll stay with your current home for a while but you know that you’ll sell it down the road, think about putting in hardwood floors or natural tile, which lasts a lifetime and can make a huge impact on your resale value. Improve Your Lighting When you hear about lighting, most home sellers immediately think about light fixtures. While installing versatile or trendy light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a good idea, you should also pay attention to how you can make use of natural light in your home. Using natural light will make your space seem larger, brighter, and cozier. Also, you’re more likely to have a potential buyer walk through during the day, when sunlight will make a bigger impact than light fixtures. Try putting in window treatments that help you get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in San Diego are a nice choice, because they let you adjust the angle that sunlight comes through your windows. Fix Smaller Details Installing new appliances, cabinetry, and other large-scale jobs can help your house’s listing get noticed, but you may get a lot more bang for your buck by spending time on your home’s small details. Put in new faucets in your bathroom and kitchen. Install new handles and knobs for your drawers and cabinetry. Repolish your staircase banister and handrails. Put in new covers for your floor and ceiling vents. All of these smaller projects can make a big visual impact at a fraction of the cost of bigger projects. Show Off More Storage Space “Space” is the main word here. All the closets, extra rooms, and square feet in the world won’t make a difference to potential buyers if they’re too full to appreciate. Get more space in your closets by using space-saving organizers, clear out rooms except for the bare essentials, and move nonessential furniture or belongings into a temporary storage unit or into your new home. Control The Temperature If prospective buyers aren’t comfortable when taking a look at your home, there’s not a good chance that they remember it fondly when making a decision. The easiest way to make guests comfortable is to crank your thermostat – don’t be afraid to make your AC do a little extra work in the summer or the furnace during winter. You can reduce the workload on both you and your A/C and heater by doing more to insulate your space. An insulating window treatment like Polywood® plantation shutters can help reduce heat transfer through the glass by half, making climate control in your home a breeze.
