® recently published its list of the 20 features most frequently listed by potential home buyers in 2015. Topping that list were these features:

  1. Fireplace
  2. Wood Flooring
  3. Carpeting
  4. Granite Countertops
  5. Stainless-Steel Appliances

Here in the Lake Martin area, carpeting is not as much a sought-after feature as it might be in other areas. However, an open-floor plan which includes a chef’s kitchen with a ton of storage is pretty high up on our list.

This information is helpful if you’re thinking of putting your home on the market – we will make sure to highlight these in your listing! And if you’re considering upgrades, these add to the appeal to future buyers.
