Looking to flip and sell a townhome in Clinton, MD? Consider these custom closet renovations that could significantly improve your sale value.
Welcome to Clinton, Maryland: a pleasant suburb within Prince George’s County that is a great starting place for families. It’s quiet with a small-town feel, but you can still easily access everything you need (as far as stores and restaurants) in nearby Waldorf. Residents have a good mix of public and private schools, and housing is relatively inexpensive, especially when compared with other Washington, DC suburbs.
It’s these low housing prices that make Clinton a great spot for real estate investors to get started. In truth, Clinton is in a bit of a housing slump—which means the buyer’s market is strong. If you’ve invested in a townhome property in Clinton, MD, with the intention of flipping and selling later, you’ve got several custom closet strategies to consider that could significantly improve your sale value.
Tackle the Master First
If you’ve purchased a rowhouse in Clinton with the intention to sell later, you’re probably looking at extensive remodeling projects. Whether you’ve put roots in an inexpensive development near Cosca or you’ve invested north of 223, you’re going to want to make the most of your budget and the house you’ve chosen. You might put in entirely new floors or replace kitchen appliances, but you also want to consider tackling this often overlooked room: the master walk-in closet.
Though closets are a relatively small renovation, they pack a big punch for buyers who are touring the house—meaning that custom closets are a value-adding venture for any investor who’s looking to improve their sale price. If you’re really looking to impress, adding a custom master closet system should be the next item on your investing to-do list.
You don’t have to go crazy here—we’re not looking to turn an entire spare bedroom into a Carrie Bradshaw closet, after all. But adding high-quality, thermally fused laminate cabinetry, sturdy and elegant drawers, and a few unique accessories will go a long way toward making your master closet the star of the show.
Move on to the Reach-In Closets
If you’ve got the budget for renovations in the other bedrooms of your Clinton rowhouse, consider adding a custom closet system in these rooms as well. Reach-in closets can also benefit greatly from the addition of custom organization systems. One stunning master closet makes a great first impression, but a whole house of custom organization systems feels infinitely more luxurious.
Because you don’t yet know what your buyers will be using each room for, you’ll want to move forward with simplicity in mind. Giving a good portion of the closet to a shelving unit (perhaps with a drawer or two) will leave their use up to interpretation. Because all of our shelves are adjustable, your clients will be able to move them as their needs dictate. You may want to include a set of dual hanging rods as well, for good measure.
Finish off with a Stunning Pantry
For a really impressive finishing touch, you may also want to consider giving your rowhouse a pantry makeover. Some new adjustable shelves will work wonders for appearances and will even work to your advantage in a home that’s sadly lacking in pantry space. If you’ve got more room to work with, consider adding in a custom accessory like a pull-out wine rack or a lazy susan in a corner. These are elements that your buyers can touch and feel when they walk through your property, providing a tactile memory that makes your new pantry stand out.
