Stand Out Selling Features

It’s not often that you come across a home with as many selling features as this one. Located at 4826 Kilmarnock Drive, this home features direct access to the beach via a 30’ panhandle. If that weren’t exciting enough, this 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home sits on a third of an acre with stunning views and many updated features throughout the space. Selling features like these helps attract buyers to your home. Identifying these features can really make a listing stand out. So, what parts of your home classify as selling features?

Selling Features: Kitchen and Bathroom Updates!

If you browse through a couple of listings, you’ll see that many of the selling features include updates. There’s a good reason for that. Properly completed updates send a message to the buyer that they won’t need to do a bunch of maintenance on these areas as soon as they buy it. Some of the most common updates are kitchens and bathrooms, which see a lot of use and require regular upkeep to keep them in good shape. In our new listing, the owners updated the kitchen to include a granite countertop and island. The kitchen also features stainless steel appliances, a luxury to any home cook.

Selling Features: It’s All About Location!

Location is often advertised as a selling feature. This is somewhat buyer dependant, as each person has their own idea of what makes the perfect place for a home. For young families, this could be a home situated close to schools or parks. For a professional couple working long hours, a quiet location might be their preference. Other considerations could include proximity to shopping or a location with a view. In our new listing, the home’s selling features include walk-on access to the beach and beautiful ocean views from many places in the home. Talk about a great location!

Selling Features: Comforts and Luxuries.

If being situated on a beach with a fully updated kitchen isn’t enough for you, there’s more selling features to consider! Many people look for comfort and luxuries in home purchases. This is entirely personal preference, as each person has their own understanding of what luxury or comfort is to them. For some, it’s extra rooms, a large master bedroom, or an ensuite master bathroom. For others, it’s outside entertaining space, hardwood floors, or walk-in closets. Still others value hot tubs and fireplaces as the ultimate in luxury. The possibilities are endless. Our new listing has multiple selling features in this area. It features a natural gas fireplace in the living room and a newer deck that’s accessible from the master bedroom via sliding doors.

Each of these selling features contribute to attracting a buyer. Whether you’ve got a couple of selling features or many, they’ll be a big consideration for any potential buyers looking at your property.  If you’d like to take a look at 4826 Kilmarnock Drive, give us a call!
