Of homes on the market that tend to sell faster, most have desirable features homebuyers seek. While this doesn’t mean you have to upgrade your home, it does mean you may be able to accentuate features already present in the home; or, if you plan on upgrading your home, upgrade wisely, choosing upgrades that are important to homebuyers.
According to a survey conducted by the National Association of Realtors, there are certain features in a home US homebuyers search for, such as a home that are Internet ready. Other top features in a US home for sale include cable and satellite TV.
One top priority homebuyers reported was to purchase a home with air conditioning, and among homebuyers who claimed air conditioning was a top priority, 85 percent purchased a home with air conditioning.
So, what are a few other important features in a home according to US homebuyers polled in the survey? Three bedrooms and two full baths were specific features in a home, as well as walk-in closets.
The National Association of Realtors also reported features buyers look for include:
One story homes
Homes with 9 foot ceilings or higher
Homes with larger closets
Homes with larger kitchens
Homes with plenty of storage space
Another interesting tidbit is that most features homeowners seek; they do purchase homes with features, such as homes with walk-in closets.
So, if you plan on upgrading your home, consider the top features homebuyers look for in a home as they may help to enhance a quicker sell. If you already have features like large closets, than expand on them, such as adding lighting in the closet and / or organizers, making the closets more appealing.
