How to Increase the Value of Your New York Townhouse

January 27, 2021

As we start 2021, everyone can agree it's a seller’s market.

While New York properties sell quickly, you may still need an upgrade before putting your townhouse on the market.

Now is a great time to take stock of your townhouse, and look at ways to increase the value of your home.

Although this is a challenging time, we know New York will be back and better than before. People have already started returning to New York City. But as they come back, people want to find an even better living situation than they had before. So how can you improve your townhouse for potential buyers?

There are plenty of ways to increase the value of your New York home. Here are the main things you’ll want to consider when updating your New York townhouse that will appeal to every buyer.

UPGRADE YOUR KITCHEN.

A lot of New Yorkers used to eat out at restaurants throughout the week. That changed a lot during the pandemic. Now people want to be sure they have access to a great kitchen for a home-cooked meal. Take the time to upgrade your kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and new appliances.

INCREASE CLOSET SPACE AND STORAGE.

New Yorkers are known for collecting plenty of knick-knacks over time. And unfortunately, New York apartments aren’t known for having much closet space. So make sure you have plenty of storage space to accommodate your potential buyers. Work with a contractor like those at beaulive to see if you can add storage space, create a walk-in closet, or lofted storage.

UPDATE FLOORING AND TILE.

As much as we love the charm of a squeaky floor, it’s time for the parque panel to go. See if it’s possible to replace or update the flooring and tile throughout your townhouse so it’s appealing from top to bottom. And don’t forget to put in the iconic subway tile in the kitchen.

ADD OR IMPROVE YOUR OUTDOOR SPACE.

The pandemic taught a lot of people how important it is to have access to outdoor space. You may not realize it, but you can add outdoor space to your townhouse. Whether it’s a roof deck or a balcony, a New York architect can help you add some green space to your home. This will be a major draw for any potential buyers.

While we’ve all had to make adjustments during the pandemic, many people have taken the opportunity to make improvements to their homes. And this is a fantastic time to invest in your townhouse so that you can sell it at a profit when it comes time to move on to the next home.
