Adding Closets Can Give Your Home Value A Boost

If you're looking for a way to increase the value of your home, consider looking not in the kitchen, but rather in the closets. Updated, custom closets help add additional storage to your space, making it more usable for you, and more appealing to future buyers. Here are some reasons why closets can make a home more valuable to potential buyers.

Closets Make a Home Move-In Ready

Unless they're specifically shopping for a "fixer-upper," today's buyers want to purchase a home that is move-in ready. The little features that show the homeowner has given the home plenty of TLC and attention are invaluable in this. When a buyer opens a closet and sees a professional organizing system, they know that the home has been well maintained. This makes it seem more valuable in their minds.Ā 

Custom Closets Have a High Return on Investment

If you invest in a custom closet, you'll have almost all of that investment when selling your home. Custom closets sell homes, and they can mean the difference between a home that sits on the market and one that sells quickly for a good price. You will be able to enjoy the use of the closets while you live in the home, and then enjoy the financial benefit when you're ready to sell.

Adding Closets Improve the Home's Function and Value

If your home doesn't have enough storage space, adding a closet can add value significantly. Consider a den in your home that doesn't have a closet. When you add one, you instantly add a bedroom. Adding linen closets in the hallway or the bathroom or a storage closet under the stairs adds additional storage space that buyers will want.

Following Current Trends Improves the Home's Appeal

When thinking about closets, consider the current closet trends. Purposeful organization is essential to making a close appealing. Built-in shelving, pull-out drawers and bins, ironing boards, and built-in shoe racks all have a reason for being in a closet and a benefit to the home's owner. A dresser in the closet is another current trend, keeping all clothing storage in one convenient location.

If you have the space to do some remodeling, consider adding a second closet to the primary bedroom. Individual closets go hand in hand with dual vanities to make a master suite more practical and comfortable, and modern homeowners, particularly in larger homes, are look gin for these kinds of features.

Use Custom Closet Space in Small Closets

Many homeowners with smaller homes make the mistake of assuming that custom closet space isn't for them. This couldn't be farther from the truth. When selling your home, you need to remember that your buyer is looking for a home like yours, even if it's become too small for your needs now. So, consider using a custom closet organizing system in your small closet. It will maximize your storage space and give your home a polished look that makes it sell well.

If you're thinking of selling your home in the near future, consider those improvements that make your home shine in the eyes of potential buyers. Closets are one of these, so give your closets a makeover and see how much more quickly the home will sell.
