Want to sell a home?
Tout the home’s subway tiles or barn door.
A new Zillow study found that mentioning those features and others in a listing can help a home sell faster and for more money.
In an examination of listing description, days on market and prices, Zillow found 15 descriptions that appeared to boost a home’s appeal.
Leading the way were “barn door,” which corresponded with a 13 percent bump over estimated price and a sale 57 days faster than average.
After barn door came (in order): shaker cabinet, farmhouse sink, subway tile, quartz, craftsman, exposed brick, pendant light, frameless shower, heated floors, stainless steel, granite, backsplash, tankless water heater and outdoor kitchen.
