When you renovate features in your home, you want to get the most bang for your buck. Not only do you want to make your home a better place for you and your family to live, but you also want your renovations to add to your home’s resale value.

But what, exactly, are the features that will help your home sell faster?

Give Your Renovations Some Character

According to recent data from Realtor.com (which analyzed more than 1 million single-family listings), the top three renovations that will help you sell your home quickly and at a prime price point? A chef’s or gourmet kitchen, a theater room, and a home gym. These renovation projects were named the “most profitable home features for sellers banking on quick sales.”

Those three features were deemed the most profitable. But they weren’t the only renovations that helped homes fly off the market. Also included on the list of features that will help your home sell faster include a three-car garage (#4), solar panels (#5), a home office (#9), and an in-ground pool (#10).

As the new year is here, plenty of homeowners look for ways to renovate their spaces to keep them feeling interesting and updated. If you’re preparing to put a home on the market, keeping up with trends is key because unless your prospective buyers are flippers, staggers, or redecorating fiends, nothing can make would-be buyers turn tail faster than some outdated decor

Also, keep in mind that there are some renovation trends that you should retire at this time, features such as:

  • Granite Counter Tops
  • The Edison Bulbs
  • Statement Range Hoods
  • All White Kitchens
  • Barn Doors
