2. Blue kitchens and bathrooms. Homes with blue kitchen walls will, on average, sell for about $1,800 more than homes with a white kitchen.
3. Trendy features. For example, homes with barn doors or farmhouse sinks will get 13.4% more on average than than homes that don’t have those trendy features. Additionally, shiplap accent walls are another popular feature that could add value to your home.
4. How close are you to the city? A median average home in the city will often sell for about 35% more than the average home in the suburbs. Being closer to the city will drive up price points.
