4 'lifestyle' features sellers should highlight


September 08, 2013
You've cleaned, de-cluttered and spruced up your home. The kitchen looks fantastic and the landscaping is perfect. But don't overlook the everyday features of your home. These are lifestyle features that can help a buyer see how they might actually live in your home.

These differences can be small, even subtle, but are aspects of a home that impact everyday life. Here are four "lifestyle" features sellers can highlight:

Storage space/organizing systems

This may seem very subtle, but think about your three kids and all the cleats, bats, lacrosse sticks and sports bags hanging in that sports rack you have in the garage. Now think about all that equipment laying on the floor...my point exactly!

Mud rooms

These are multi-functional spaces. A place for everything and everything in its place. The kids' backpacks, dirty shoes, gloves and scarves, that case of wine you haven't broken into yet.

Flex spaces

This could be a place upstairs where you imagine you are Martha Stewart and have 42 rolls of ribbon for crafting. Or that space in the basement you use as a workshop, or a craft room for re-finishing furniture. It's where your son decided to rebuild your wife's bike and put a motor on it...yeah, you know what I'm talking about.

Outdoor spaces

Deck space, outdoor fireplaces, covered porches. Any place you can take the inside outside. It's also where you'll break into that case of wine in the mud room.
