Unique Features Attract Buyers

Whether you play up an existing interior feature or install something new simply for effect, chances are that buyers will both notice and remember unique extras about your home. The idea is to demonstrate how your home boasts special features that other homes may not. Sometimes even minor interior details, such as a window seat or kitchen wainscoting, can make a home more memorable and attractive to potential buyers.

Transform Empty Space into Unique Space The creation of new spaces in a home is a great way to make your interior unique. Sellers might consider transforming unused space, such as the area beneath basement steps, into a storage closet or laundry nook. Similarly, attics might be converted into usable space, such as a bedroom, playroom or office, which can have a big payoff at sale time.

Stage Spaces to Suit Several Purposes If the room already boasts an extraordinary feature like a screened porch or conservatory, be sure to play it up for dramatic effect. For instance, not all buyers will be searching for a greenhouse; so be sure to include great patio furniture or suggest how the space might have alternative uses. A screened-in porch could be used as a seasonal dining area or a sumptuous place to relax. Include items that suggest the many uses the space offers.

Highlight Unique Features with Furniture or Lighting Completely functional design elements should also be played up for the sale. Keep built-in bookcases orderly and neat. Highlight the fact that buyers can place furniture in front of them—an attractive writing desk or a chaise lounge can create the feel of a classic library. Accent high ceilings or crown moldings with an attractive lighting feature, such as a chandelier.

Add Features to Complement Your Home’s Style Sellers, who are eager to install new interior features to attract buyers to their home, might consider installing an island or breakfast nook to their kitchen. Pocket doors, period fixtures, decorative arches, and large closets are good selling points for any home. Sometimes a new decorative treatment that emphasizes the home’s period or architectural style can have a significant impact. For instance, stamped tin panels might highlight an arts and crafts era home. A chrome table and chair set might set off a great 1950s kitchen.

Remember, buyers want to know what makes your home special. So, the more unique features you can point out or install, the more likely your home’s interior will captivate onlookers. While some decorative and design features are subjective, if you stick to styles that match your home’s overall architecture or that are universally functional, you will give your home some added selling points.
