8 Home Features Buyers Want Most

The National Association of Realtors survey revealed the following eight interior design features that buyers ranked as “very important” in their home search:

  1. Walk-in closet in the master bedroom
  2. Ensuite master bath
  3. New kitchen appliances
  4. Eat-in kitchen area
  5. Hardwood floors
  6. Granite countertops
  7. Kitchen island
  8. Stainless steel appliances

I would agree with the list.  My husband and I recently sold a house.  We went back and forth trying to decide where to put our money to fix up the house before we put it on the market.  Do we finish a walk out basement or do we update the kitchen with granite countertops and new stainless steel appliances?  We went with pulling out the white appliances and ripping out the formica countertops.  I definitely struggled with this because the white appliance were only 2 years old but we were able to sell them very quickly on craigslist.  With the shiny new kitchen we got 2 offers in a week close to asking price.
