If you’re selling your home, you’re probably already doing your best to make any last-minute fixes and updates, while focusing on curb appeal and superior staging. Below, Mary Lynn Stone, President of CENTURY 21 New Millennium walks us through four home amenities buyers love to look for.

A wine cellar. While there’s no need to totally renovate your space just to appease any future wine enthusiast, recent surveys have shown that wine cellars are a hot commodity in today’s market. “Have some space in your basement you rarely use? Consider turning it into a wine cellar with a few wine racks,” says Stone. Note that wine cellars should have limited light, and a minimal variation in temperature.

Walk-in closet with clothesWalk-in closets. Nothing says “home sweet home” louder than a walk-in closet. If your master suite is particularly large, consider walling off a corner for that awe-inducing walk-in effect.

Storage space. “When it comes to your home, it’s nearly impossible to have too much storage space,” says Stone. Have high ceilings? Add extra shelving or cabinetry, or construct a shelving wall in the garage.

Outdoor living. “Everyone loves to imagine themselves lounging outdoors on a summer evening,” says Stone. It can be easy to simulate an outdoor living experience—simply group a couple of chairs and a table in the yard, or make use of that deck or porch by providing ample seating.
