Home Selling Features
Understanding what buyers want is key to selling a house because offering the right features makes it easier to find the right buyer. While it may seem counter-intuitive to consider remodeling projects when you're getting ready to move out, making the right upgrades can actually make a big difference in selling your home faster.

The cost will often be more than worth it in the long run as long as you keep the focus on adding the features that buyers want most. Our REALTORS® always keep an eye on the latest real estate trends, and we've narrowed the list to five features that will help sell your home faster.

From Sale to Sold: Five Features That Will Help Sell Your Home Faster

  1. Laundry Room
    Have you ever lived in a home or apartment without a washer and dryer? It's never fun dragging your laundry to another destination, so it's no surprise that most buyers consider a laundry room a must-have when shopping for a home. Building or renovating a new room is certainly an option that can increase appeal, but simply adding a washer and dryer in a sensible place should also get the job done. If you don't plan to take on the expense of building a new room, the basement is usually a good place to install a washer and dryer. This is one feature that will appeal to buyers from every demographic.

  2. Cabinets and Counters
    The kitchen will always be a top priority for potential buyers scoping out your home, so it's worth it to consider ways to make your kitchen space as appealing as possible. If your cabinets and counters are old, too small, or looking less than their best, then a fresh look for your kitchen can add major appeal to your home. You can also work with an interior design pro to help make the most of every inch of your kitchen space.

  3. Efficient Appliances and HVAC Systems
    Whether you want to appeal to environmentally conscious buyers or those who want to save money on utility bills, upgrading to efficient appliances is a great way to add value to your home. The same goes for efficient heating, ventilation, and cooling systems, which keep your home comfortable with minimal energy use. Look for the ENERGY STAR label when you're shopping, in order to find the most efficient appliances and HVAC components.

  4. Smart Features
    Your energy-efficient appliances and HVAC system will look even better if the buyer can control them from their smartphone. Adding smart features to your home is less costly than other items on our list, and can add major appeal for the tech-savvy buyer. You can start small with a smart thermostat, install a smart security system, or go big and connect the whole house.

  5. Backyard Patio
    Barbecues, sunsets, and summer days outdoors never go out of style, so you'll find that a backyard patio ranks high on the list of desired features for shoppers. Adding a patio is also an excellent way to help buyers envision their own lives in the home, which is often key to closing the deal. A simple patio is a great place to start, and you can also consider adding an outdoor cooking area to increase appeal even more for potential buyers.

Adding the right features is a great way to increase interest in your home, and finding the right real estate team is the key to getting across the finish line. Contact Haring Realty to buy and sell homes in Mansfield, Ohio.
