6 Factors That Increase Home Value in the Dallas Area

Home sellers in the DFW area sometimes ask us whether certain features will increase or decrease the value of their home. While there’s no surefire answer to that question, there are certain amenities that buyers tend to value. In this article, I’ll go over six factors that can help increase the value of your home.

If you’re selling your home in Dallas, you’ll want to make sure you list it at the right price. Of course, things like upgrades and remodels will add to the value of your home, but there are some less obvious features that can also have an impact.

For example, if your home has a good view or is located in a desirable neighborhood, these are both factors that can increase value. So, before you list your home, take some time to consider all of the factors that could impact its value. By doing so, you’ll be more likely to sell your home quickly and for the right price.

Home Features That Increase Value Information for Home sellers presented by Oleg Sedletsky, Realtor in Dallas TX

1. Parks and recreational areas.

When it comes to finding a place to call home, more and more buyers are looking for neighborhoods with easy access to green space. If your home is located near a state, county, or city park, it’s likely to be more attractive to potential buyers—and commanded a higher price as a result. Fortunately,

According to Journal of Leisure Research analyses suggest that greenways may indeed positively affect proximate properties’ sales prices, in the most positive case to the extent of one fifth of value, resulting in millions of dollars of increases in prices Read the study here

If you’re selling your home in the Dallas area, rejoice! There are plenty of parks to choose from!

2. Professional sports arenas.

Love cheering on the Cowboys, Mavericks, Rangers, or Stars? Living close to a professional sports arena can actually add to the resale value of your home.

So whether you want to catch a game or simply enjoy having nightlife and entertainment options nearby, living close to a professional sports arena is a win-win!

3. Starbucks (or another popular coffee chain).

A lot of people love having easy access to their favorite coffee spot—and apparently, that love translates into cold hard cash when it comes time to sell their home. A study by Zillow found that “homes located within walking distance or one-quarter mile of a Starbucks appreciate 96% more than expected.” While we can’t guarantee that putting a Starbucks on every corner will lead to your home’s value doubling, it’s safe to say that having one nearby can’t hurt!

4. Trees.

Living near trees has been linked with lower stress levels, improved mental health, better air quality, and increased property values. One study found that “mature trees in good condition can increase property values by an average of 15%.” Another study showed that “landscaping—including mature trees—can raise property values by as much as 20%.” So if you’re looking for ways to increase your home’s value without breaking the bank, planting some trees may be a good option!

5. Walkability.

For home sellers in Dallas, the value of their home is likely to be increased by the presence of things to walk to. Master planned communities, shopping centers, restaurants, and historical districts are all perfect examples. By having a few things to walk to in these suburban communities, home sellers can increase the value of their home. This is due to the fact that buyers are looking for places that are highly walkable and have a variety of amenities nearby. Therefore, if you are selling your home in Dallas, be sure to include these types of features in your listing. They are sure to attract buyers and help you get top dollar for your home.

I’ve saved the best for last! Having a nice view has been linked with increased happiness and decreased stress levels and it can also make your wallet happy come resell time.  If your home has a great view, whether it’s of downtown Dallas or Fort Worth skyline or a pretty park or lake, be sure to mention that in your listing! A good view can be hard to come by in densely populated areas like the DFW metroplex, so buyers will be willing pay extra for homes that have them.

so if you’re lucky enough to have a lake view from your home, you may be sitting on a gold mine!
