Desirable home features are important—to both buyers and sellers. If you’re buying a home, of course you’re looking for the best of the best for your home. And if you’re selling, well, you want to make your home as appealing to buyers as possible, right? So… what features should you be looking for?
Here are the top home features in today’s O’ahu homes for sale.
An Open & Flowing Floorplan
Bonus if your floorplan also seamlessly transitions to an outdoor area!
Plenty of Outdoor Entertaining Space
This is vitally important in Hawaii… with weather like this, who wants to be inside? A good home has got to have a way to enjoy the great outdoors, whether that’s a patio, a deck, or just a great backyard. Even if you live in a condo, having a deck or terrace does a lot for a home.
Bonus for features that increase usability, like outdoor lighting, a sound system, a firepit or outdoor kitchen, or a pool.
A Gourmet Kitchen
Even for those who don’t cook much, a fancy kitchen is a highly coveted feature. Eat-in kitchens with bars or breakfast areas are pretty popular, and other top features include stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and a kitchen island.
Bonus for high-end appliances, 6-burner stoves, or add-on appliances, like a wine cooler or second oven.
A Luxury Master Retreat
Nowadays, master bedrooms are way more than just bedrooms. Huge walk-in closets and spalike ensuite bathrooms are becoming almost commonplace in today’s homes. Buyers are looking for soaking tubs, dual vanities, marble counters, and more.
Bonus if your bedroom also has an outdoor walkout or private balcony!
A Separate Laundry Room
Bonus if there’s a separate sink and plenty of storage!
Energy Efficient Features
Who doesn’t want to save money on their utility bills? Why pay more to run the AC, oven, or washing machine when you can pay less? Energy Star appliances and windows, updated HVAC systems, low-flow faucets and showerheads, and even LED lighting are all common energy-saving features.
