There are many factors that can affect your home’s value. Things that often come to mind are improvements, neighborhood, size of the home, quality of the yard, the year built, and curb appeal. While there are many areas that are obvious, there are a few that sellers don’t often think of.
Here are four things that can affect your home’s value that might be surprising.
1. Mature trees

2. Surrounding stores
It’s surprising to find out that having popular stores in close proximity to your house can have a positive effect on your home’s value. Stores such as Starbucks, Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s are known to give sellers double-digit gains on their home’s value! Surrounding amenities like these really do make a big difference.
3. Crown moldings
Many people love the charm that crown molding brings into a home. It cuts an impressive profile with elegant curves and distinguishing angles. It also elevates a room’s stature, drawing the eye up to the ceiling to create a polished look for the space. On top of that, it’s affordable, pretty easy to install and can instantly increase the value of your home.
The marketing plan your real estate agent implements on your behalf will determine the amount of interest that is shown in your property and, ultimately, the amount the home will sell for. Your agent’s skill level in the negotiating process is also important. Hire an experienced agent so you can get the most value out of your home.
