Closet space can serve as a key differentiator for home sellers, particularly in a highly competitive real estate market. Fortunately, there are many quick, easy ways to revamp your closets, and ultimately, make them appear much larger. Here are five tips to help you transform ordinary closets into spacious ones instantly:
  1. Install a pegboard. Hang your belts, sunglasses and other accessories in your bedroom closet thanks to a pegboard.
With a high-quality pegboard in place, you'll be able to organize many items and access them without delay. After you list your home and begin showcasing it to prospective buyers, your self-installed pegboard is sure to make your bedroom closet stand out during any home tour.
  1. Take advantage of shoe shelves.
For those who want to organize their footwear, there may be no better option than shoe shelves. When it comes to selling your home, you'll want to do everything possible to make a distinct impression on prospective homebuyers. Thanks to shoe shelves, you'll be able to show interested parties exactly how much closet storage space they can enjoy if they purchase your home.
  1. Set up a mirror.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? Setting up a stunning mirror in your walk-in closet enables you to maximize your storage space and make a bold décor statement as well. Any fashionista is sure to appreciate a walk-in closet mirror. And for those who want to set their home apart from others, installing a mirror in a walk-in closet may make a world of difference in the eyes of homebuyers.
  1. Use shelf dividers.
Keep your blankets, clothing and other closet items organized thanks to top-of-the-line shelf dividers. Using shelf dividers ensures that every item in your closet has its own home and can be organized accordingly. Furthermore, these dividers guarantee you won't have to sacrifice closet space and can optimize the amount of storage space at your disposal consistently. Shelf dividers serve as great options to show others exactly what they can do with all of the closet space that is available in your home. As a result, shelf dividers may help you differentiate your home from others on the real estate market.
  1. Get rid of clutter.
Clutter is a major problem for homeowners across the country, but those who gain control over their clutter can eliminate this problem. Try to clean out your closets every few months. This enables you to reduce the risk of clutter accumulating over an extended period of time. Also, focus on dividing your closet items into things you need and things you want. By doing so, you can put yourself in a better position to get rid of non-essential items regularly. By devoting the necessary time to maximize your closet space, you may be able to accelerate the process of selling your home. Remember, even minor features can help your residence stand out in a competitive real estate market, and those who are committed to distinguishing their home from others should evaluate the closet space available throughout their house.

Ready to purchase your dream home? Before you finalize a home purchase, it may be worthwhile to schedule a home appraisal.

With a home appraisal, a property expert will examine a residence both inside and out. The home appraiser then will offer a property valuation.

In some instances, a home offer may be appraisal-contingent. And if the home appraisal valuation falls below the amount of a buyer's offer, the buyer may request a renegotiated price.

A home appraisal may prove to be an important part of the homebuying process. As such, it is paramount for homebuyers to understand what an appraisal is all about and determine whether to conduct an appraisal.

To better understand home appraisals, let's take a look at three home appraisal facts that every homebuyer needs to consider.

1. An appraiser's valuation is his or her opinion of what a residence is worth.

Typically, a home appraiser will use a broad assortment of housing market data as part of a home assessment. The appraiser also will look closely at a residence as part of the home evaluation process.

Although a home appraisal is based on housing market data and a home assessment, it is essential to note that a home valuation is an appraiser's opinion. Therefore, two home appraisers may examine the same housing market data and the same house and come up with two different home valuations.

2. The homes in a neighborhood may affect the valuation of a residence.

Believe it or not, a home's value may be impacted by those around it. Thus, if you intend to buy a home, it often pays to evaluate the neighborhood to better understand whether a house's value will decline, stay the same or increase over time.

Furthermore, what you spend to improve a house is unlikely to raise a house's value proportionately. And if you spend $20,000 on home improvements, there are no guarantees that these home improvements will add $20,000 to a home's valuation.

3. A home appraisal and a home inspection are two very different things.

A home inspection often is considered a must-have during the homebuying process, and perhaps it is easy to understand why.

During a home inspection, a property expert will ensure there are no structural issues with a home and identify any problem areas. Then, a homebuyer can move forward with a home purchase, rescind a home offer or submit a counter proposal based on a home inspection report.

On the other hand, a home appraisal enables a property expert to evaluate the house in its current state. A home appraiser will compare and contrast a home in relation to others in the area and offer a valuation.

If you need help determining whether to conduct a home appraisal, a real estate agent is happy to assist you. With a real estate agent at your side, you can determine whether to set up a home appraisal prior to finalizing a home purchase.
