Features that Sell Homes Faster

Have you ever wondered why some home sell faster than others? Are you currently trying to sell your home and wonder why it’s not selling? Just like with technology, features, form, and finally functionality are key determiners for how fast your house will sell. Let’s take a look at the features that will help sellers improve the chances of selling their homes faster and for more money. Summarily, there are 15 key words that sellers should pay attention to as potential home improvements to make their homes sell faster. These words include: 1) Barn Door, 2) Shaker Cabinets, 3) Farmhouse Sink, 4) Subway Tile, 5) Quartz, 6) Craftsman, 7) Exposed Brick, 8) Pendant Light, 9) Frameless Shower, 10) Heated Floors, 11) Stainless Steel, 12) Granite, 13) Backsplash, 14) Tankless Water Heather, and 15) Outdoor Kitchen. While the list above is helpful and should be kept in mind, there are five keywords that are sure to help sell a home more quickly.   Barn   Barn Doors Homes that mention the words “Barn Doors” sell for 13.4% percent more than expected and 57 days faster.  These “Barn Doors” add a rustic appeal to modern craftsman-style homes. They are used on bedroom closets, in kitchens, and for bathrooms. Aside from looking cool, they are functional, because they don’t open out into a room or into a small space. Their sliding appeal adds a space-saving approach to any room.         shaker Shaker Cabinets Statistically, homes with “Shaker Cabinets” sell for 9.6 percent above what is expected, and sell for 45 days faster. By simply understanding the qualities that buyers are looking for in a kitchen, sellers can broaden their ability to sell homes that are attractive and appealing.     farmhouse Farmhouse Sink Surely, you have seen this trendy sink on many, popular HGTV hits! This sink is called a Farmhouse Sink. And, it is all the rage on popular home improvement shows. Highly functional, and very large, this sink enables savvy sellers to sell their homes for more than eight percent more than without these fashionable sinks.           SubwaySubway Tile Subway Tile is a completely cool feature to add to kitchens, bathrooms, and showers. It offers a retro, classic design that underscores urban, modern appeal. Typically, Subway Tile is white, but it can come in other colors. Clean looking, and very elegant, this feature attracts buyers, because of its beauty and durability. Plus, it reminds us of New York City. And you cannot get cooler than that! Homes with this feature sell for nearly seven percent more than expected and 65 days faster.         Quartz


Adding to the clean look that Subway Tile offer, sellers that boast homes with “quartz” sell for six percent more. While granite was the “thing” and homes with this feature still sell for four percent more than homes with other counter tops; kitchens with quarts fetch a higher price. Typically found in kitchens and bathrooms, quartz is an elegant and functional way to extend and integrate a common look and feel throughout a house. Aside from their increased sell ability, quartz is beautiful, timeless, elegant and durable.   SetSchedule has changed the way real estate marketing is viewed, by changing the way REALTORS® access clients and listing appointments.
