5 Projects to Up Your Dallas Home Value

June 19, 2018

Selling a house in Dallas can be a process. But if you’re planning on putting your Dallas home on the market in the near future, there are a number of projects of different sizes that you can work on to up your home’s resale value.

Here are some of the most effective ways to up your Dallas home value.

Put In New Flooring

“New floors” is one of the most common features on listings for a good reason. Regardless what kind of floors they are, from wood to laminate to carpet, new floors increase your home’s appeal during a walkthrough and can help a home sell in less time.

If you’re trying to add some interest to your home listing, try installing some cheaper plush carpet or LVT flooring that will make a big impact without costing a fortune. 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 will last for years on end but can make a large impact on your home’s value.

Improve Your Lighting

When thinking about lighting, most homeowners start thinking about interior lighting. While putting in new or stylish light fixtures is a good idea, remember to pay attention to how you can use natural light inside.

Utilizing natural light can make your home seem more spacious, brighter, and more comfortable. Additionally, you’re more likely to have a potential buyer tour during the day, when natural light will play a bigger role than light fixtures.

Think about putting in window treatments that help you get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Dallas are a perfect choice, because they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that sunlight enters.

Fix The Little Things

Putting in shiny new appliances, millwork, and other large-scale projects may help a listing get noticed, but you might get a lot more bang for your buck by focusing on your home’s small details.

Replace the faucets in your kitchen and bathrooms. Put in newer handles and knobs for your drawers and cabinetry. Refinish your staircase banister and handrails. Get new vent covers for your ceiling and floor vents. Any of these smaller projects can make a big visual impact at a fraction of the cost of bigger projects.

Maximize Storage Space

“Space” is the main word here. All the closets, number of rooms, and square feet in the world won’t appeal to potential buyers if they’re too full to appreciate.

Arrange your closets with space-saving racks, empty out rooms except for the bare necessities, and move nonessential furniture or belongings into a short-term storage unit or into your new home.

Control The Temperature

If potential buyers don’t feel comfortable while touring your home, they probably won’t remember it fondly when making a decision. The easiest way to make guests comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t hesitate to make your air conditioner do a little extra work in the summer or the furnace in winter.

You can reduce the stress on both you and your HVAC system by better insulating your home. An energy-efficient window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters can help reduce energy transfer through the glass by half, making climate control in your home a breeze.
