Maybe you’re considering putting your Flower Mound home on the market, or just want to “spruce things up” and add value in case you decide to sell at some point in the future. Regardless, there are a few extras that can increase your home’s value that you may find surprising! Our real estate agents have revealed some of these extras below.
While you’ve probably heard the saying “fences make good neighbors,” what you may not know is that the right fence can increase the value of your home substantially! What you don’t want is the typical chain-link fence; instead, opt for that white picket fence or those crafted of cedar or other natural materials. Added curb appeal, and privacy!
Original wood floors. Homeowners love wood floors, especially if they’re the original ones installed when the home was built. Why is this? Original floors are much easier to maintain, and any damage can easily be fixed with a little sanding and a coat of varnish.
Smart tech. Automatic sprinkler systems, a programmable thermostat that can be operated remotely, whole-house wi-fi, and other technology makes homes attractive to potential home buyers. Much of this technology makes homes more energy efficient, important to those who are environmentally conscious.
Stainless steel in the kitchen. While it’s been highly popular for quite some time now, stainless steel remains a favorite when it comes to refrigerators, dishwashers, ranges, and other appliances. Invest in stainless steel appliances, and you’ll likely recoup double what you spent if you decide to sell your home!
Walk-in closets. What family can’t use more room to store some of the clutter? Families who are actively looking for a new home in the Dallas area absolutely love spacious, roomy closets they can move around in.
Fireplaces, mudrooms, and formal dining rooms are other extras buyers are attracted to. While you certainly can’t make all of these changes to your home, even one or two can increase the “wow” factor and make your home more attractive to buyers while increasing its value!
