Sizzle Features

When it comes to renovating a house for resale, there are so many different variables to think about. Some of these include the amount of repairs needed on the house, the area the house is located, the condition of the housing market and so much more. Though these factors are crucial to making a profitable deal, here at Our Flipping Family, we have an additional principle we always keep in mind called sizzle features. A sizzle feature is what sets one house apart from the next. They are unique parts of the home that make a potential buyer remember your house over all the others. Today, we’re going to chat about why sizzle features are a must and even share some of our favorites with you.

Sizzle features are crucial because, sorry to break it to you, your house isn’t the only house on the market. Sizzle features put you a step above. For example, picture a neighborhood with two renovated houses on the block that are each for sale. Both houses are attractive and have undergone the same amount of work but House A has a beautiful barn wood mantle above the fireplace and House B does not. At this moment in the buyer's mind, House A with the mantle is far better than House B. Isn’t it fascinating that something as small as a piece of wood on a wall increases the value exponentially in a buyer’s mind? But those little items that pull on the buyer’s heart strings and make them excited are what they remember. They don’t usually walk away from a day of house shopping saying, “I loved that house with all new windows”, but instead say “I love that house that had the cute mantle and built in shelving!”
