5 Tips to Help Increase Your Miami Home Value

June 19, 2018

Selling a home in Miami is an undertaking. But if you’re planning on trying to sell your Miami home in the next few years, there are some projects both big and small that you can plan to make your listing more attractive to home buyers.

Below are a few of the best ways to increase your Miami home value.

Get New Flooring

“New floors” is one of the most commonly seen features on home listings for a reason. Regardless what style of floors they are, from hardwood to tile 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 LVT flooring that will make a big impression without costing a fortune. If you’re in your home for the long haul but you know that you’ll sell it someday, think about installing hardwood floors or natural tile, which will last for years on end but can make a large impact on your resale value.

Improve Your Lighting

When talking about lighting, most people immediately think about light fixtures. Although installing new or trendy light fixtures is a good idea, remember to pay attention to how you can manipulate natural light in your home.

Making use of natural light will make your house feel larger, brighter, and more comfortable. Also, potential buyers are more likely to tour your home during the day, when natural light will play a bigger role than indoor lighting.

Try installing window treatments that let your windows get the most out of natural light. Plantation shutters in Miami are a nice choice, as they let you adjust the angle that sunlight comes through your windows.

Spruce Up The Little Things

Getting fancy appliances, millwork, and other big jobs may help your home catch more eyes, but you may get your money to go farther by focusing on smaller details in your home.

Get new faucets in the kitchen and bathrooms. Put in newer handles and knobs for your drawers and cabinetry. Restain the handrail and banister of your staircase. Replace the floor and ceiling vent covers. Each of these smaller fixes can make a big difference at a fraction of the cost of other projects.

Maximize Storage Space

“Space” is the main word here. All the closets, extra 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 organizers, clear out rooms except for the bare essentials, and move extra furniture or belongings into a short-term storage unit or into your new house.

Control The Temperature

If potential buyers don’t feel comfortable when taking a look at your home, they probably won’t remember it fondly when making a decision. The easiest way to make sure guests are comfortable is to dial up your thermostat – don’t hesitate to make your air conditioner put in work during the summer or the furnace during winter.

You can lessen the workload on yourself and your A/C and heater by doing more to insulate your space. An insulating window treatment such as Polywood® plantation shutters can help reduce heat transfer through your windows by half, making the temperature in your home much easier to control.
