Want to make sure your home sells fast? There are ways you can increase the value and desirability of your home.

If you are selling your home in the near future then you need to make sure it's ready. Check out these top five home features that all buyers are looking for right now!

1. Smart Home Features

When showing your home, having smart features built-into the house instantly add buyer appeal. Technology that allows you to change the temperature of any room using just your mobile phone can be an impressive bonus.

Home security, safety, temperature, and lighting are all ways that you can add smart devices that buyers are looking for. The good news is they are becoming more and more affordable.

2. Home Functionality

When buyers are looking at your home they want to be able to see a space they can use in a variety of ways. This means open floor plans, multi-use rooms, and first-floor master bedroom suites are sought-after features.

Showing that the spaces in your home can be used for entertaining, office spaces, or guest rooms with a lot of natural light, can make buyers show interest right away. 

Storage is another way to make your home appealing to potential buyers. Showing that your home has neat and organized storage areas is a must.

3. Modern Kitchen

The kitchen is one part of the home that home buyers are looking to be wowed. You can't do that with outdated appliances or old cabinets. However, it's no secret that kitchen remodeling can quickly become costly.

If you can't completely remodel your kitchen you can try to make upgrades to areas such as storage, a kitchen island, breakfast nook, stainless steel appliances, or even upgrade to a farmhouse-style sink.

4. Bathroom Must-Haves

All the best realtors know that when it comes to the bathrooms you want to upgrade as much as possible. If your current bathroom is outdated you should consider upgrading to a timeless style for your vanities and cabinetry. Show that your bathroom has plenty of storage too!

Other desirable features are free-standing soaker tubs, custom walk-in showers, and double sinks. Buyers know these features are valuable for years to come. 

5. Move-in Ready 

After shelling out a ton of money to pay for a house, buyers don't want to have to pay for maintenance afterward. They prefer homes that are move-in ready.

One way to show that your home is move-in ready other than the features mentioned above is to purchase new kitchen appliances. This not only adds to the value of your home but homebuyers will instantly notice the upgrade.

It will be one less thing they have to worry about purchasing for quite a while. And they will save on electrical costs with the latest energy-efficient technology.

6. Porches and Patios

Today's buyers are looking for more space most likely because they are coming from cramped apartments. That means they are eager to find more space for relaxing and lounging including patios and porches.

Spaces like these help potential homebuyers to envision themselves sitting in the backyard enjoying time with friends and family. Especially in today's world of social distancing, having outdoor space to entertain is a must-have.
