Fast-Selling Features Your Home Needs

A few new “wow” factors could get your house sold faster…and make you more money. Zillow Digs released a study this week that reveals the latest secret power words. Barn doors,farmhouse sinks, shaker cabinets and subway tile are features found to amp up a home’s desirability. The study, pulled from over 2 million houses from January 2014 to March 2016, showed that properties with these items sold for a price 13% higher than expected.

Additionally, some of these features have shown to help sell the homes faster. Listings with shaker cabinets in the description sold 46 days faster than expected, and those with barn doors sold 57 days faster than expected, but the REAL real estate mover phrase is subway tile – with homes selling 63 days faster than expected!
