In today’s slow real estate market, homeowners are looking at resale value when it comes to making improvements on their homes, and rightly so: The more “extras” your home has, the more likely it is that it will be purchased before it can languish on the market for several months, or even longer! Having custom closets installed is one investment that will pay off later, should you decide to sell your home. Consider these facts:
Homebuyers are looking at photos
Most buyers use websites such as Zillow.com, Homes.com or Realtor.com in order to screen homes before they ever call a real estate agent to schedule a showing. Having custom closets installed in your home and having their photographs up on those real estate websites can absolutely impact potential buyers to schedule showings or attend your open house. The more people who see your house, the more likely you are to get a bid.
Homebuyers want “something special”
To be realistic, most homebuyers can “make do” with any house that has their required number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and is located in the area where they’d like to buy. If the average person looks at dozens of homes, eventually they all start to blur together in their minds. Having an impressive custom closet system, however, will stand out. It just might be that “something special” that turns a “maybe” into a resounding “yes!”
Women, in particular, are concerned with storage space
Let’s face it: in most homes, it’s the woman who handles the day-to-day housework and organization projects, including switching out seasonal clothing, taking out holiday decorations and putting laundry away. When a couple comes to view a house, the man might head for the garage or shed, while the woman might head for the kitchen and the closets. Is there enough cabinet and closet space to hold all of the household items? A custom closet provides the storage space that she’s looking for.
Custom Closets help you keep your home in show-ready condition
When your house is on the market, you need to keep things in tip-top shape at all times; you never know when a real estate agent is going to call, and it’s frustrating to have to turn someone away because the house isn’t ready for show. You won’t have to worry about not having a place to stash your packed boxes; your custom closet organization system will help you keep everything out of the way to make showings easy and low-stress.
A custom closet system will make your home function better and will give you a lot of extra storage space that you never even knew you had. It does something else, too, which is to make selling your home that much easier.
