5 Projects to Increase Your San Antonio Home Value

June 19, 2018

Selling a home in San Antonio is an undertaking. But if you’re planning on trying to sell your San Antonio home in the future, there are some projects both big and small 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 best ways to increase your San Antonio home value.

Get New Flooring

“New flooring” is one of the most commonly seen features on listings for home sales. Regardless what style of floors they are, from hardwood to tile to carpet, new flooring improves your home’s appeal during a walkthrough and can help a listing move more quickly.

If you’re trying to get your home on the market and sell quickly, try installing some cheaper berber carpet or LVT 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 will last for years on end but can make a great impact on your home’s value.

Rethink Your Lighting

When thinking about lighting, most homeowners immediately think about interior lighting. Though installing high quality or stylish light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a great plan, you should also pay attention to how you can make use of natural light in your home.

Utilizing natural light can make your home look larger, brighter, and more comfortable. Besides, potential buyers are more likely to tour your house during the day, when natural light will be a bigger player in how your home looks than interior lighting.

Try installing window treatments that help you get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in San Antonio are a nice choice, because they let you adjust the angle that the light pours in.

Fix The Little Things

Installing new appliances, cabinetry, and other large-scale projects can help your home stand out, but you might get your money to go farther by spending time on smaller details in your home.

Get new faucets in the bathroom and kitchen. Put in newer handles and knobs for all of your cabinets and drawers. Repolish the handrail and banister of your staircase. 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.

Increase Your Storage Space

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

Arrange your closets by using space-saving racks, clear out rooms except for the bare necessities, and move unnecessary furniture or belongings into a storage unit or into your new home.

Control The Temperature

If potential buyers are too hot or cold while touring your home, chances are they’re not going to remember it fondly when making a decision. The simplest way to make guests comfortable is to crank your thermostat – don’t be afraid to make your AC do a little extra work in the summer and likewise with the heater in winter.

You can lessen the stress on yourself and your A/C and heater by better insulating your home. An energy-efficient window treatment like Polywood® plantation shutters can help reduce energy transfer through the glass by up to 50%, making climate control in your home a breeze.
