Looking to sell your luxury home in 2021? There are few things more exciting than flipping your home, but if you’re looking to attract a high-value home buyer, when it comes to flipping your current property, you may be wondering what’s the best way to get a quick home and soft sale.
This shift toward experience means that buyers are now looking for standout features that they can actually use, and that aren’t just available for aesthetic appeal. Hot tubs, outdoor showers, movie theaters and even meditation gardens are now at the top of the list, and adding some of these to your home before putting it on the market could substantially increase your profits.
Here are the features you should consider incorporating into your home before selling, but be careful, because you may not want more once they are complete!
1.- Attic Remodeling
According to Spring, loft conversions can add up to 25% in value to a home, creating more space and increased functionality in any type of home, whatever the size. A loft conversion can become almost anything a homeowner wants it to be, from an office to a meditation room. Determining the type of person living in your home and tailoring it to their tastes and desires will go a long way.
2.- Home gym
Health and fitness have taken center stage during the pandemic, and more people now care more about nourishing their bodies with good food and exercising regularly. A glamorous glass-walled home gym can add considerable value to your home, allowing affluent and potentially high-profile buyers to exercise from the comfort of their own home. Offering privacy and convenience for those living busy lifestyles, it is sure to win them over.
3.- Wine cellar
A wealthy buyer will certainly be no stranger to a good vintage bottle, and if wine collecting is among your list of hobbies, then a private wine cellar to house the bottles you have accumulated is sure to appeal. An added luxury that is not a necessity, but will absolutely facilitate a more luxurious lifestyle, is an added feature that any wine connoisseur would love. Again, it all comes down to knowing your target customer, but the vast majority will surely love it. And, given that cellar conversions add up to 30 percent of the value of your home, it would be almost impolite not to.
4.- Heated Rooftop Infinity Pool
Let’s face it: few things scream luxury lifestyle in the same way as a heated rooftop infinity pool. The perfect place to relax and unwind in total privacy and an even better place to kick back and enjoy a glass of champagne, this is a feature that instantly evokes memories of your favorite five-star hotels and will make anyone feel like a celebrity in their own home. Add a whirlpool tub to the mix as well and your home will practically sell itself, because what could be more appealing than being able to enjoy a spa experience at home?
5.- A kitchen upgrade
It’s often said that the kitchen is the heart of any home, and renovating yours to create more space and functionality could increase the value of your home by as much as 15 percent. But it’s the little extras that are most likely to win over your prospective buyers, such as a pantry, warming drawers and, of course, that all-important built-in wine fridge.
When it comes to adding value to your luxury home before you sell, there are many things you can do to boost the numbers, but it’s important to keep in mind that any new additions should be functional and cater to the majority of wealthy prospective buyers, as well as look good. It would be easy to assume that creating something unusual would set your home apart from the masses, but doing so can be risky and limit your pool of potential buyers, so keep things opulent, but refined.
