3 Key Features Real Estate Buyers Will Pay Extra For, Des Peres, Missouri

Making improvements and updates to your home before putting it on the market is a great way to attract buyers and bump up your real estate value. While those values are going to be somewhat limited by the prices of surrounding properties and other factors, there are still some features buyers are willing to pay a little more for. If you’re planning on listing your home or just renovating it for yourself, below are some of the elements that could help you increase the value.

3 Home Features That Will Get You Higher Offers

1. A Master Suite

The master bedroom is an increasingly popular feature. More and more home buyers are looking for a master suite with a feeling of coziness and luxury, with large, modern bathrooms and walk-in closets. Installing a second sink in the master bath area will make your home a lot more attractive to married couples who are after a little more comfort.

2. Kitchen With an Eating Area

real estateThe kitchen has become the information gathering place in the American home, so the more comfortable it is, the better. Stainless steel appliances and modern fixtures are nice touches, but many buyers would love an eat-in kitchen, especially those who are raising a family. Younger buyers are often attracted to open floor plans with kitchens that look out into the communal living areas.

3. Hardwood Flooring

When it comes to timeless elegance and durability, nothing beats hardwood floors. A newly refurbished or freshly installed hardwood floor is hard to ignore, and it will help bring buyers through the door. If traditional hardwood doesn’t fit into your budget, consider using bamboo or wood-look laminate as attractive alternatives.
