5 Projects to Increase Your Las Vegas Home Resale Value

June 19, 2018

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 do to make your home more attractive to home buyers.

We’ve collected 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 home listings for a reason. Regardless what type of floors they are, from hardwood to laminate to carpet, new floors increase walkthrough appeal and can help a listing move in less time.

If you’re trying to add some interest to your home listing, 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’re in your home for the long haul 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, don’t forget to pay attention to how you can use natural light inside.

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

Try putting in window treatments that can make the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Las Vegas are a fantastic choice, because they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that the light enters.

Replace The Little Things

Installing new appliances, millwork, and other big projects might help a listing get noticed, but you might 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. Get new vent covers for your ceiling and floor vents. Any of these low-cost fixes can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of other projects.

Increase Your Storage Space

“Space” is the main word here. All the closets, number of 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 with space-saving organizers, clear out rooms leaving only the bare necessities, and store unnecessary furniture or belongings into a short-term storage unit or into your new home.

Control The Temperature

If potential buyers are too hot or cold 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 it a lot easier to control the temperature in your home.
