Custom Closets Increase Home Value

3 minute read, by Closet America, on Jun 15, 2011

Every home is in need of storage.  Homeowners are constantly collecting more items and are in constant need for more space to store items such as seasonal décor, photo memories, and different wardrobes.

Custom closets can add value to your home.

Do custom closets increase home value? According to Jayne Ehrens, Real Estate Professional for TTR Sotheby’s International, “Buyers today want a home that is move in ready, and when it comes to closets they want more than just rods and hooks. When potential buyers see a professional organizing system in a closet, it makes that particular house stand out from the rest and in today’s market that’s important. Conversely, when we are working with sellers and getting a home ready for the market, the first thing we tell them to do is to de-clutter and one of the easiest and most effective ways to do that is to get a professional organizing system. The financial benefits far outweigh the cost.”

When and if you ever decide to sell your home, a custom closet can be a major selling point.  Homes that have proper closet space are often much more desirable than those which have older, smaller closets, which can increase home value.

Consider your space and how to increase home value. Do you have a newer home—which often has a large walk-in closet, pantries and beautiful home office space?  Or do you have an older home, with a small closet and limited areas to store items? With storage space at a premium in these older homes, it’s imperative to declutter and organize your things well.

The solution for every need – large or small – is a custom closet organization system.

Plus, the potential buyer would love the idea of having an organizational flow already available to them in their closets. They would also fall in love with the flexibility that comes with this type of organization.”
