Often when homeowners customize their homes, it can be harder to sell their home because the house is set up to be functional for them and it will not appeal to a wide range of buyers. However, there are some custom touches that homeowners can make that will actually increase the amount of interest in their home. These are a few of the custom touches that buyers really love in a home:

Custom Storage

There can never be too much storage in a home. In addition, when homeowners invest in custom-built storage that fits into the home perfectly it will definitely get the attention of potential buyers. Storage built into areas like the kitchen, laundry room, and mudroom is a big selling point. So is a custom storage unit in the garage. Craft or bonus room storage is also in high demand along with custom storage built into kids’ rooms or playrooms. Buyers that have older homes that do not want to make a huge investment in renovating the home can reach more buyers by investing in some custom-built storage for their home before selling it.


Edmonton Custom HomesVery few homes come with original decks. But adding a deck is a smart investment for a homeowner if they want to sell their home faster. Custom-built decks maximize the use of outdoor space and provide a family-friendly gathering spot that is more stylish and comfortable than an outdoor patio or concrete pad. Adding a deck doesn’t cost a lot compared to more home renovation projects and it is something that buyers really like to see. With the current trend of combining outdoor and, indoor living not going anywhere anytime soon, adding a deck is a great way to modernize an older home and attract more buyers.

Security Systems and Cameras

Installing top of the line digital cameras as part of a smart home security system is an easy way to get more buyers interested in a home. Home security is something that people are very concerned with and buyers love the idea of buying a home that already has a security system complete with digital cameras installed in the home because it’s one less thing they will have to do when they move in.

Smart Home Features

Replacing the current thermostat with a digital smart home device that can be monitored and controlled from a cell phone is a fantastic custom addition to a home. It will make life easier for the homeowner and it adds a great selling feature to the home. Energy efficient and trend-setting smart home technology is a big draw for buyers so sellers who want to attract as many potential buyers as possible should consider investing in some smart home technology.
