5 Home Features Buyers Are Looking For


Posted by: Kathie Butts on Wednesday, October 20, 2021

Are you considering a home sale soon? Here’s what potential buyers might be looking for this fall:

Safety Features

You might consider upgrading your garage door, adding an alarm system or repairing your fence. Anything that improves the safety and security of your home is an automatic value-add.

Energy-Efficient Enhancements

Making your home more energy-efficient has a two-fold benefit: It helps the environment and cuts down on utility bills. Most buyers are happy to pay extra for both.

Plenty of Storage 

Storage space is always worth a premium. If you can, find ways to add additional storage to your property before listing it, maybe with a set of garage shelves, a closet system or a more streamlined pantry.

Functional Fun

Can you make your home more enjoyable? This might mean adding an outdoor kitchen, building a theater room or installing a small fire pit in the backyard. As we’ve learned over the last several months, outdoor areas are practically essential.

Health-Forward Add-Ons 

Homes equipped with no-touch faucets, mudrooms, air filtration systems and other health and comfort-focused items are sure to align with modern buyers’ needs. 

Of course, it’s always important to keep up with your home’s general maintenance and perform any major repairs that may be necessary as well.
