5 Projects to Increase Your Las Vegas Home Resale Value06/19/2018Darik Neilson Selling a house in Las Vegas is a process. But if you’re thinking about putting your Las Vegas home on the market in the next few years, there are a number of projects of different sizes that you can plan to both increase your home resale value, and to make it more attractive to potential buyers. Here are some of the most effective ways to up your Las Vegas home value. Put In New Flooring “New flooring” is one of the most common features on listings for home sales. Regardless what type of floors they are, from hardwood to laminate to carpet, new floors increase walkthrough appeal and can help a listing move more quickly. If you’re trying to move your home quickly, think about putting in some less expensive berber carpet or vinyl flooring that can make a big impression without hurting your wallet too much. 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 flooring or natural tile, which lasts a lifetime and can make a big impact on your home’s value. Improve Your Lighting When you hear about lighting, most home sellers immediately think about interior lighting. While putting in new or stylish light fixtures is a good plan, you should also pay attention to how you can manipulate natural light inside. Using natural light can make your space seem more spacious, brighter, and more livable. Also, you’re more likely to have a potential buyer tour 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 Las Vegas are a great choice, as they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that the light comes in. Replace The Little Things Installing brand-new appliances, cabinets and drawers, and other big projects might help a listing get noticed, but you may get your money to go farther by focusing on your home’s small details. Put in new faucets in the kitchen and bathrooms. Put in newer handles and knobs for all of your cabinets and drawers. Repolish your staircase banister and handrails. Put in new covers for your floor and ceiling vents. Each of these low-cost fixes can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of other projects. Show Off More Storage Space “Space” is the operative word here. All the closets, number of rooms, and square footage in the world won’t mean anything to potential buyers if they’re filled with all your belongings. Organize your closets with space-saving organizers, clear out rooms leaving only the bare necessities, and keep extra 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, there’s not a good chance that they remember it fondly when making a decision. The simplest way to keep them comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t hesitate to make your air conditioner put in work during the summer and likewise with the furnace in winter. You can reduce the stress on both you and your A/C and heater by insulating your home. An insulating window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters will help reduce heat transfer through the glass by up to 50%, making climate control in your home a breeze.
