Sell Your Home For Top Dollar With These Design Features!

Does the home you want to sell come with a kitchen with quartz countertops? Or maybe it has exposed beams or ceilings? Wainscotting in the select rooms? Does it have a playroom or in-law suites? Heated floor, radiant heat or perhaps, central vacuum? If any of these are found in your home, you'll be surprised at how much more above its expected value you can get it sold!

The good people at found that entry-level homes with listing descriptions that include any of these features often sold 20 percent upwards more than expected based on a review of over a million starter home listings.

Mentioning that your home has picket fences, jacuzzi tubs, outdoor fireplace or pit can help sell it for 21 percent more than expected. You can get a bit more for hardwood at 22 percent more while outdoor kitchen, gas furnace and home theater are at a 23 percent premium. That eyecatching pergola can get your home sold for 25 percent more.

Landscape, path, outdoor or deck lighting on an entry-level home fetches 26 percent higher than expected. Mid-century modern design homes like ranch and split-level types can sell for 28 percent more than expected. And that claw-foot tub in the master bathroom? Don't forget to include that too as it can command up to a 29 percent premium.

The biggest gainer? Solar panels, seen as an "upgrade," take the cake at 40 percent more than expected. Energy efficient features not only tend to look good on a listing description, they're seen as high premiums among starter homes.

While not every homebuyer might be willing to pay the premium certain home features add to a listing, knowing which features or amenities to highlight- or would matter to your ideal buyer- can greatly increase your chances of having it sold above expectations.

So does your home have any of the aforementioned features? Would you like to find out how much your home can sell? Click that little black box below or contact me right away so we can find out together how we can get your home sold for top dollar!

Dear Shanna,

I had no idea that solar panels would fetch so much. That means they are triple-green: good for the environment, good for your pocket book in the short run & good for your pocket book, when you sell.
