The real estate market is really, really hot right now! Are you looking to get in on this amazing market and sell your home? As tempting as it is to put a “For Sale” sign up in the front yard this afternoon, it is worth it to make sure your home will be worth as much as possible. This means pressing pause on listing your home and making a few small renovations and upgrades first.
One question we are often asked is “Can a new closet increase my Greenville home’s value?” We’re here to definitely answer that question right now. The answer is yes! Closet remodels can dramatically improve your home’s appeal, increase value, and add functionality to your space. Plus, they are much easier on both your wallet and your stress level than a complete kitchen or bathroom remodel. You don’t have to take our word on it, though. Let’s look at a few hard numbers and facts that back up our point!
It is no longer a suggestion or a nice thing to have. A spacious walk-in closet is becoming a must-have for many homebuyers. As Forbes reported recently, large closets “have gone from a desired amenity to an expectation.” Real estate professionals here in Greenville and everywhere else in the country agree that closets can literally make or break the sale of a home. An impressive closet can close the deal if buyers are on the fence. Everyone wants as much storage space as possible!
There’s more data backing up this simple truth. Research tells us that the average closet remodel reports a fantastic ROI (return on investment). Homeowners can expect to recoup around 56% of their investment, adding roughly $2,000 to their home value. That’s great news for homeowners like you!
Don’t worry if you are antsy to sell before the market cools down. We get it! One of the best things about a closet remodeling project is that it can be as extensive or minimal as you want them to be. If you want to move quickly, so can we! Your investment and home value increase are directly proportionate to your initial investment in the upgrades you choose. If you want to add a little value, do a minimal renovation. If you want to add a lot of value, install a brand-new walk-in closet and consider upgrading the storage space in other rooms as well. In fact, after a bigger remodeling project you may just love the home so much you decide you don’t want to leave after all!
