New Year Resolutions For Your Home

How are your New Year Resolutions coming? Home improvement is one of the most popular - and one you'll probably work on all year. Your goal might be to upgrade your kitchen or bath, to be more organized or to make your home more efficient. If you're looking to make a change, it's a good idea to keep abreast of popular trends that may increase the value of your home for a future sale. These were some of the most popular home features for buyers in 2017:

1. Fireplaces

Both indoor and outdoor fireplaces rate highly among home buyers searching on the internet. Fireplaces create a cozy environment and a gathering place for entertaining in addition to low cost heat.

2. Stainless Steel Appliances

A well-established trend, stainless steel appliances and fixtures still rate highly among people searching for homes. Durability, ease of cleaning and a sleek, modern look make this a valuable choice in home improvement.

3. Garden Tubs

Jacuzzi-style tubs are out, garden tubs are in. Other spa-like bathroom features like steam showers are also among the most desirable home features for today's buyers.

4. Smart Technology

The ability to control your home's systems using smart technology is a huge selling point. You can control your audio, television, security and HVAC - all from your smartphone. Smart technology upgrades will make your home especially attractive to Millennial buyers.

5. Chef's Kitchens

The kitchen has always been the heart of the home, and the popularity of cooking shows and celebrity chefs have made home kitchens with "professional-grade" amenities more and more common.

6. Outdoor Living

Austin-area home buyers are crazy about outdoor living space and amenities. Adding an outdoor kitchen, patio or lounge area is another great way to increase your home's appeal.
