A Unique Custom Wine Cellar Really Does Increase Your Home’s Resale Value
Everyone wants their house to become their home. You have a specific spot you set your jacket down; you like to entertain guests in your favorite room; you relax with your wine in the comfort of your own wine cellar. Designing a house that fits your needs is what makes a house valued as a home—it is special.
The feeling of a unique home does not resonate with everyone, which makes many nervous to build custom spaces. When you resell, the buyer needs to see all the custom areas of your home as upgrades they want in their new house. If they don’t, you may not resell for the price you want, and you could end up stuck in your home never able to sell and move on.
All realtors know that not all custom spaces are created equal. For example, adding a space in the attic will not increase the value of your home significantly and will not entice buyers through the front door. In order to create a space with a good return, you need to create a distinct charm. So the question arises:
Does a wine cellar have enough character to increase the value of your home?
A custom wine cellar will add to your home’s value because it establishes a compelling space with an emotional appeal for buyers. The buyer’s genuine attachment will generate a high return during resale.
Buyers are drawn to wine cellars because they convey passion. Custom wine cellars are created for a specific purpose: to properly store wine collections. A wine collection, even in its earliest stages, communicates passion. Each collection requires time and consideration to build, which wouldn’t be worth it to the collector if there was no drive or attachment. That is the difference between an attic remodel and a wine cellar: passion.
When you resell your custom home, buyers are looking for a sentimental space because it resonates with them on an emotional level. They will become attached to the wine cellar because of its authentic display of interest. Developing an emotional bond with at least one person is the key to selling your custom home.
A Custom Wine Cellar Draws Potential Buyers to Your Home
Drawing attention to your home will increase your custom home’s resale value. The more people that are enchanted by your abode, the more likely you are to find the right buyer or even have buyers compete. During resale, competition over your home is a great way to increase the price by raising the stakes. But before you think about that, you need to get those people inspired to step through the front door and into your house.
The First Thing Your Realtor Will Mention
A custom wine cellar will be the first thing your realtor will advertise about your home. It will draw more people in for tours than the pool, the media room, and the gym because its intimacy and elegance will stand out. Wine cellars communicate to buyers better than other custom spaces because they are unique
Your wine cellar matches your needs and passions and shows a space where you were able to leave compromise at the door. Buyers expect to see spaces where you confidently succeeded in bringing something personal and new to the home. That space will remain unique so that they can proudly display it as the new homeowner.
People Will Talk about Your Home (in a Good Way!)
The moving character of your custom wine cellar will certainly generate buzz. Wine cellars beg visitors to ask questions about the space:
* How was it constructed?
* How much wine can it hold?
* What types of wine did you have?
Buyers and their realtors will be compelled to ask these questions and talk about the custom wine cellar, not only with each other but also to their friends. These friends will then become intrigued and come to tour the home. The anticipation of finally seeing the space will make the tour powerful and memorable for these potential buyers. This shared emotional experience is what will attract buyers to your home and increase the perceived resale value to the final purchaser.
Buyers Want to Upgrade their Lifestyle
Along with the distinct nature of your custom wine cellar, buyers will view it as an upgrade to their own life. When people decide to move, for whatever reason, they are always looking to upgrade their lifestyle. They want a space that will make them happier and more comfortable than the place they were at before. A custom wine cellar will be appreciated as a luxurious, yet comfortable, sanctuary for enjoying wine and entertaining guests.
A Certain Resale Price Point Requires Custom Wine Storage
At a certain price point range in every market, a custom wine cellar becomes a necessity in a custom home. When your home starts getting into the million-dollar price range in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, buyers began to look for and expect custom wine storage. In order to draw the buyers of this price range to your home, you will need to sell it as a genuine custom home with finesse. Proper wine storage will be the feature that makes your house a true custom home when it is on the market.
A Home with a Custom Wine Cellar Does Resell at an Increased Value
A custom wine cellar fulfills what every buyer desires emotionally and at that million-dollar price point: passion, comfort, and exclusivity. And when you go to resell your home, you will know every penny and second put into your custom wine cellar was worth it!
