5 Tips to Help Up Your Salt Lake City Home Resale Value

June 19, 2018

Getting a house sold in Salt Lake City is an undertaking. But if you’re thinking about putting your Salt Lake City home on the market in the near future, there are a number of projects both big and small that you can work on to up your home’s resale value.

We’ve collected some of the best ways to up your Salt Lake City home resale value.

Install New Flooring

“New flooring” is one of the most common features on listings for a good reason. Regardless what style of floors they are, from wood to tile to carpet, new flooring improves 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, try putting in some cheaper plush carpet or vinyl flooring that will make a big impact without hurting your wallet too much. If you’re in your home for the long haul but you know that you’ll sell it someday, think about installing hardwood flooring or natural tile, which will last generations but can make a large impact on your resale value.

Replace Your Lighting

When you hear about lighting, most home sellers immediately think about light fixtures. Though putting in high quality or trendy light fixtures is a great plan, you should also pay attention to how you can manipulate natural light inside.

Utilizing natural light can make your space look bigger, brighter, and more comfortable. Additionally, potential buyers are more likely to walk through your home during the day, when sunlight will be more important than interior lighting.

Think about installing window treatments that can make the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Salt Lake City are a perfect choice, because they give you a lot of freedom in the angle that the light enters.

Fix Smaller Details

Installing fancy appliances, cabinetry, and other big jobs can help your home catch more eyes, but you might get your money to go farther by spending time on your home’s small details.

Replace the faucets in the kitchen and bathrooms. Put in newer handles and knobs for all of your cabinets and drawers. Refinish your staircase banister and handrails. Put in new covers for your floor and ceiling vents. Any of these low-cost projects can make a big visual impact at a fraction of the cost of other projects.

Maximize Storage Space

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

Arrange your closets by using space-saving organizers, clear out rooms leaving only the bare necessities, and keep unwanted furniture or belongings into a short-term storage unit or into your new space.

Control The Temperature

If potential buyers are too hot or cold while walking through your home, chances are they’re not going to remember it fondly when making a decision. The easiest way to make sure guests are comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t be afraid to make your air conditioner put in work during the summer and likewise with the heater during winter.

You can lessen the stress on yourself and your HVAC system by insulating your home. An insulating window treatment like Polywood® plantation shutters can help block heat transfer through your windows by up to 50%, making the temperature in your home much easier to control.
