Having new window blinds installed in Los Altos Hills, CA homes may seem like something that people who are selling or thinking about selling their homes can skip. This may seem like a small detail to think about, especially if there are other things that you need to do to your home in the way of upgrades and repairs before you put it on the market.
However, there are things that new window blinds can do to make your home more attractive to potential buyers. It’s important to remember that many repairs and upgrades that homeowners do when they are getting ready to or thinking about putting their homes on the market can’t be seen by potential buyers.
It doesn’t mean those upgrades or repairs should not be done, because every investment you make in your home when you are thinking about or getting ready to sell it adds to the quality and value of your home.
However, much of a home’s appeal to potential buyers is how it looks and feels. And that may be more of a factor in decision-making when people are buying a home than the more practical, but unseen, things you’ve done to improve your home.
How can having new window blinds installed in your home when you are selling or thinking about selling it make your home more attractive to potential buyers?
Obviously, the first thing that new window blinds will do is to improve the look of every room in your home. Because window blinds come in many different materials and colors, they can be used as a complementary element in a room or as a contrasting element that breaks up a room in a way that sets off other elements of the room’s décor.
New window blinds can completely transform a home into something fresh, sharp, and appealing to potential homebuyers not only from inside your home, but also from outside (curb appear). They can add that extra touch that makes your home stand out in from all the other homes that are for sell in your area.
Another thing that makes having new window blinds installed in your home more attractive to potential buyers is that it saves them from having to get window coverings installed before they move in and after they move in.
One of the most urgent things about moving into a new home is ensuring a sense of privacy from the outside world. If you have new window blinds installed in your home before you sell it, then the family buying your home knows they already have privacy in their new home before the first piece of furniture is unloaded from the moving van.
Because window blinds last a long time, the family buying your home knows that their privacy will be preserved for the long-term, and they won’t have to worry about them for a very long time.
In that vein, real estate agents will tell you that homes that are move-in ready – meaning potential buyers don’t have to do anything like painting, replacing carpet, or having window blinds installed – are much more attractive to people who are house hunting than homes where work must be done before the homebuyers and their families can move in.
Move-in ready homes tend to sell more quickly and closer to the asking price, even in a buyer’s market, than homes that are not move-in ready.
