Top Features Washington DC Home Buyers Want

Washington DC home buyers are looking for low maintenance and convenient features in their homes. From floors which are easier to maintain to energy efficient appliances, home buyers know what works best for them. These features assist in quicker sales and higher home estimates. Take a look at what home buyers are currently looking for in a home and use this list to maximize your home’s value.

Low Maintenance Homes

Home buyers are making sure they know what they’re getting with their purchase. Many buyers want homes which are easy to care for. These buyers, typically on the younger side, want features such as granite counter tops which are long-lasting, carpet-less flooring, and top-quality appliances that work well, and are on the newer side. Today’s home buyer isn’t interested in maintaining old appliances. They’d rather replace than maintain. Low maintenance properties typically sell better than their older less convenient counterpart. You can have a low maintenance home with newer, energy-efficient appliances too, which are well-made and long-lasting. Also, along the line of easy-care properties, energy efficient and well-insulated homes are also at the top of many home buyers’ lists.

Hardwood Floors

Hardwood floors compared to carpeting are easier to up-keep and maintain. This is one of the main reasons home buyers are searching for this feature. According to realtor.com, carpeting is typically cheaper to install but will need to be replaced in 5 – 10 years due to wear and tear. Good-quality wood floors can last forever. If you’re considering replacing your carpet you may luck out, underneath there might be wood flooring which just needs a little TLC. This feature not only makes your life more convenient with easy care but can also assist with selling your home faster in the future.

Home Offices

Another feature which may help sell your property quickly is a home office. Having a dedicated work space is highly convenient for the 12 million Americans who work from home. With this feature already included, potential home buyers won’t have to figure out where to put their office or risk overcrowding a space with a desk and computer. As the work-from-home trend has continued upward, houses with a home office are selling faster than those that don’t. What if you don’t have an office area set up? Transform a spare bedroom or part of your finished basement to inspire the home buyer on the search for one.
