3 Features To Consider In A New Home For Increased Comfort And Resale Value

by Zachary Thompson

Two of the most important features to consider when buying a house is how comfortable it is and whether or not that house can be sold without taking a loss in the future. Listed below are just a few of the features to consider in a new home that can provide both comfort and resale value.

Renewable Energy

One big feature to consider when looking for a home that will retain its resale value and make it easier to sell is solar panels. If you purchase a home with solar panels, then reselling it later on will be easier as prospective homebuyers will like the fact that the solar panels will reduce their monthly utility bills and potentially make them a bit of extra money if they produce more electricity than they use. 

The solar panels will also make your home more comfortable throughout the summer. The reason for this is that the solar panels will allow you to keep your air conditioner on for longer periods of time without increasing  your utility bills. In fact, your utility bills may even decrease despite the fact that you are using your air conditioner more often due to the fact that you are producing your own power.

Relaxing Master Bathroom

Another major source fo comfort and resale value is the master bathroom. In order to have a master bathroom that is very comfortable for you and your significant other, consider features like a soaking tub or a separate shower stall.

The separate shower stall will allow you and your spouse to bathe without getting in one another's way while the soaking tub will let you relax after a long day by immersing yourself almost completely. In order to further the relaxation aspect of your master bathroom and to make the home more appealing to home buyers, consider a home with a master bathroom that has radiant floors. 

Vaulted Ceilings

Finally, vaulted ceilings are one of the most popular home features, mostly because the high ceilings can make people feel less claustrophobic as the rooms will feel bigger than they are. In addition, the vaulted ceilings will contribute to your comfort because throughout the summer the hot air in your home will have a tendency to rise and gather around the top of the room. In addition, the cool air from your air conditioner will drop and gather around the lower areas of the rooms, which will keep you and your family cooler. 

Contact a real estate agent (such as one from today in order to start looking for your new home. By considering homes with renewable energy, relaxing master bathrooms, and vaulted ceilings you will be able to have a home that is comfortable while you are there and easier to sell when the time comes to move.
