5 Designer Touches That Make Homes Irresistible to Buyers

Though every buyer is different, there are a few things that give buyers the impression they’re going to love living in your home. Check out these five designer touches that can help you sell faster and for more money:

  1. Smart home technology

  2. Built-in wine racks and coolers

  3. Outdoor kitchens and dining areas

  4. Spa-style bathrooms

  5. Energy-efficient appliances


Here’s a closer look at each.

Home-Selling Luxury #1: Smart Home Technology

You’d be hard pressed to find a luxury home that didn’t feature some type of smart home technology today – in fact, it’s tough to find any home that doesn’t feature at least a few smart touches. Though you don’t have to outfit your entire home for connectivity, you should talk to your real estate agent about what types of smart home tech will help you sell your home faster and for more money.


Home-Selling Luxury #2: Built-in Wine Racks and Coolers

Kitchens that feature built-in wine racks and wine coolers are credibly popular among buyers. However, they’re not right in every community; In some communities, they’re a bit much. If you’re considering adding a wine rack or a wine cooler to your kitchen just to sell your home, you should talk to your real estate agent first. Your agent can give you the insight you need to make the right choice about where to spend your upgrade money.

Home-Selling Luxury #3: Outdoor Kitchens and Dining Areas

Buyers view outdoor living space as an extension of the home, so it makes sense to spend some time improving the area in your backyard. You don’t need a full outdoor kitchen or dining area, but if you can stage the space so buyers can envision themselves spending time with family and friends out there, it may make it easier to sell your home.

Home-Selling Luxury #4: Spa-Style Bathrooms

Bathrooms that look like a luxury spa are hot sellers. Though you don’t have to renovate your bathroom, you should add luxury touches that make it feel like a relaxing oasis. It may be worthwhile for you to upgrade your light fixtures, mirror, countertops and faucets; it’s definitely worthwhile for you to invest in fluffy white towels, a beautiful plant, and spa-style art.

Home-Selling Luxury #5: Energy-Efficient Appliances

Energy-efficient appliances aren’t cheap, but they often help sell homes. If you’re considering upgrading your appliances before selling your home, you should discuss the idea with your real estate agent. It may not be necessary, depending on what you currently have (and what your neighbors have).
