Unsellable Houses' Leslie Davis Says This Extra Is A Must In Million-Dollar Homes

It's always a good idea to listen to Lyndsay Lamb and Leslie Davis from HGTV's "Unsellable Houses" when they share a tip for sellers. The experts know all about how to add value to homes. You should especially listen to their advice if you plan on selling your home for around a million dollars or more, as you'll need the most appealing features to attract buyers enough to convince them to pay such a hefty price. One of those features is a spacious and organized closet.

"In a million-dollar home, you have to have those extras that people are looking for: a walk-in closet, a closet system. Those are the things that make you say, 'OK, check, check, check. This is the house that I want to select," Leslie Davis said on a Season 4 episode of "Unsellable Houses," per Realtor.com. After all, people who have a million dollars to spend on a house likely also spend a lot of money on clothes and accessories, so it only makes sense to give those potential buyers an elegant closet for all their lovely outfits.

A walk-in closet should be worth the investment

Those planning to upgrade their closet before selling their home should know that investing in a walk-in closet can cost anywhere from around $750 to $3,500 based on how spacious you want it to be. So, you may end up spending a few thousand dollars on the new closet if you don't already have a walk-in. Still, this luxe feature should be worth the investment.  Many buyers view walk-in closets as desirable and exciting, so even if you don't plan on selling your house for a million dollars, getting a walk-in closet can add value to your home if you can afford the upfront costs. Sometimes, such a glamorous addition can make all the difference when trying to impress potential buyers with your home's interior.

Once you have your new walk-in closet, be sure to decorate it before you show off your home to potential buyers. For example, adding chic lighting and some wall art will make it look even more stylish and desirable. And, if the walk-in closet is still super spacious after all the clothes are in it, consider putting in a small stand with a vase or even a petite couch for a more luxurious vibe.

Don't forget a closet system

Not only will many buyers willing to spend a million dollars or more on a home likely to want a walk-in closet, but you should take it further with a closet system, as Leslie Davis said on the episode of "Unsellable Houses." While a closet system might not be one of the most budget-friendly ideas for organizing your closet, the feature can make the closet look more chic and expensive. Some benefits of investing in a closet organizer include helping people make the most of the closet space, adding value to your house, and making the space seem more ready to start using.

The cost of closet organizers can depend on factors such as size, materials, ease of installation, and where you buy it from. For example, the 6-foot walk-in closet system by Hold Everything is available for $2,724 at Pottery Barn. On the other hand, the not-so-fancy but still sleek AURDAL Wardrobe combination sells for $265 at IKEA. No matter what closet system you invest in, you shouldn't overlook this aspect when upgrading your home to make it worth a million dollars.
