Every house is special, but what makes a home exceptional?
When we think about the dream home, we often imagine large and luxurious spaces with all sorts of features that make our lives easier and more enjoyable. However, not every home needs everything to be a truly special place. We'll be discussing in this series some of the features that can add a tremendous amount of value to your house because of how unique they are
A fireplace is the real estate definition of warmth and coziness, as it provides a focal point in the room, creates a relaxing atmosphere, and, literally and figuratively, warms the room, being an excellent source of heat during the colder months, which can help you save on your heating bills.
Fireplaces are sturdy structures designed to produce and stand heat while protecting other parts of the house from it. They give homes a sense of shelter and stability seldom matched by other features. If your home has a fireplace, you must showcase it to attract potential buyers.
A walk-in closet brings a sense of luxury to a home by dedicating significant square footage exclusively for your comfort. A walk-in closet allows you to organize your clothes and accessories in a way that makes everything easily accessible, giving you the space to get ready in the morning without having to worry about cluttered countertops or cramped conditions.
A house without a walk-in closet would need to convert a spare room or unused space or expand an existing closet to get one, requiring a significant investment. If it is already there, it adds value to your home in a unique way.
A porch is a feature that adds a lot of charm and character to your living space. A porch provides a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors while still being sheltered from the elements. It's also an excellent space for entertaining guests or spending time with family and friends.
A well-maintained porch significantly enhances the curb appeal of your home. It adds a welcoming touch that can make it more inviting to guests and potential buyers, increasing the overall value of your home and making projecting it a worthwhile investment.
Not every unique feature that enhances the value of your home has to be a pre-war one. Smart home features are becoming increasingly popular, and for a good reason, as these allow you to control various aspects of your home using your smartphone or voice commands, making your life much more convenient and comfortable. Some popular smart home features include smart thermostats, smart lighting, and smart locks.
Smart Home Features are not the first kind of enhancement people think of when acquiring a home but, once they tried it, recognize the convenience of having it already installed and ready to go.
These are just a few of the features that not every home has, but that can add tremendous value and comfort to your living space. At Simply Homes, we recognize the value of a house beyond its price.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of this series, where we'll be discussing even more features that not every home has.
