Sell your property with these most wanted features

Looking for tips when selling your home? If you are looking to enter the property market in the next few months then it would be worthwhile to take note of the advice given in this blog post – making you aware of the most wanted features within properties in 2023.

By adhering to some/ all of these trends you can set your home over the asking price and easily attract buyers.

Read on to find out more.


attract potential buyers with private parking on your own property

Designated driveway and parking areas

When it comes to selling your property, first impressions are key, therefore you need to make sure your house stands out from similar properties on the day of the viewing.

One of the most requested features at the moment, due to an increasing number of car users, is a designated driveway or parking area attached to your home.

By having such a feature you could see your property heading for a completion date – particularly in busy areas where parking is limited.

It is also good to consider a fresh coat of paint on your front door and exterior, as well as some fresh flowers to brighten up your home.


sell open plan property fast to a potential buyer

Another design style preferred by first time buyers and current home owners is open plan living. Following lockdown space is key for many potential buyers and they now look for equal sized bedrooms or even a spare bedroom to accommodate at home gym equipment or home working.

Most common layouts combine living/ dining or kitchen/ dining.

investing in double glazing and energy efficiency is needed to sell house quickly

Cost effective and highly energy efficient heating system

However all of this space needs to have energy provided at a reasonable price and that is why energy efficiency rating has become so important on any property listing.

It can be worthwhile to upgrade your central heating to help achieve the best price on your home and make it competitive against any new property being built.


make your property look its best when selling with quality photo and video

And finally, make sure to invest in quality marketing materials for your home

And finally, none of these changes are worthwhile unless you complement them with a quality video tour/ images on your online listing. Only then will your home be presented in the best light.

Your estate agent can organise this for you within their marketing packages and help you to sell faster.
