5 Projects to Up Your Orlando Home Resale Value

June 19, 2018

Selling a home in Orlando can be a process. But if you’re thinking about trying to sell your Orlando home in the future, there are some projects both big and small that you can do to increase your home’s resale value.

Below are some of the best ways to up your Orlando home resale value.

Lay Down New Flooring

“New floors” is one of the most desireable features on home listings for a reason. Regardless what kind of flooring it is, from hardwood to tile to carpet, new floors increase your home’s appeal during a walkthrough and can help a listing move in less time.

If you’re trying to move your home quickly, think about installing some less expensive plush carpet or vinyl 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 generations but can make a big impact on your home’s value.

Rethink Your Lighting

When thinking about lighting, most people immediately think about interior lighting. Though installing new or trendy light fixtures is a good plan, remember to pay attention to how you can manipulate natural light in your home.

Making use of natural light will make your home feel bigger, brighter, and cozier. Besides, potential buyers are more likely to walk through your house at daytime, when natural light will play a bigger role than interior lighting.

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

Replace Smaller Details

Getting brand-new appliances, cabinets and drawers, and other big jobs may help a listing catch more eyes, but you might get your money to go farther by spending time on your home’s small details.

Swap out the faucets in your bathroom and kitchen. Install new handles and knobs for all of your cabinets and drawers. Refinish the handrail and banister of your staircase. Put in new covers for your floor and ceiling vents. Each of these smaller projects can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of other projects.

Show Off More Storage Space

“Space” is the big word here. All the closets, extra rooms, and square footage in the world won’t appeal to potential buyers if they’re filled with all your belongings.

Get more space in your closets by using space-saving racks, clear out rooms leaving only the bare essentials, and store extra furniture or belongings into a short-term storage unit or into your new home.

Control The Temperature

If potential buyers aren’t comfortable when taking a look at your home, they probably won’t remember it fondly when coming to a decision. The easiest way to make sure guests are comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t hesitate to make your AC put in work during the summer or the heater 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 will help reduce energy transfer through your windows by half, making climate control in your home a breeze.
