5 Projects to Increase Your New Brunswick Home Value

June 19, 2018

Getting a house sold in New Brunswick is an undertaking. But if you’re planning on trying to sell your New Brunswick home in the next few years, there are some projects of different sizes that you can plan to both increase your home resale value, and to make it stand out more to possible buyers.

Here are some of the most effective ways to increase your New Brunswick home resale value.

Put In New Flooring

“New floors” is one of the most desireable features on home listings for a reason. Regardless what kind of floors they are, from wood to vinyl to carpet, new flooring improves walkthrough appeal and can help a home sell more quickly.

If you’re trying to move your home quickly, think about putting in some less expensive plush carpet or LVT flooring that will make a big impact without breaking the bank. If you’re comfortable in your home at the moment but you know that you’ll sell it down the road, think about putting in hardwood flooring or natural tile, which will last generations but can make a great impact on your home’s value.

Rethink Your Lighting

When thinking about lighting, most people start thinking about interior lighting. While installing high quality or trendy light fixtures like track lighting or responsive LED lighting is a great idea, don’t forget to pay attention to how you can use natural light inside.

Using natural light can make your home seem bigger, brighter, and more comfortable. Also, you’re more likely to have a potential buyer tour during the day, when sunlight will be more important than interior lighting.

Think about putting in window treatments that let your windows get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in New Brunswick are a nice choice, because they let you adjust the angle that the light enters.

Fix Smaller Details

Getting new appliances, cabinets and drawers, and other large-scale jobs can help a listing get noticed, but you might get your money to go farther by spending time on your home’s small details.

Swap out the faucets in the bathroom and kitchen. Get new handles and knobs for your drawers and cabinetry. Repolish the handrail and banister of your staircase. Replace the floor and ceiling vent covers. Each of these tiny projects can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of other projects.

Show Off More 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 cluttered.

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

Control The Temperature

If possible buyers are too hot or cold while touring your home, they probably won’t remember it fondly when making a decision. The simplest way to make guests comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t be afraid to make your AC put in work during the summer and likewise with the heater in winter.

You can decrease the workload on both you and your HVAC system by better insulating your home. An energy-efficient window treatment like Polywood® plantation shutters will help reduce energy transfer through the glass by half, making climate control in your home a breeze.
