A recent Zillow Digs study revealed interesting top keywords in consumers searches for listings of homes. The top search was a ‘barn door” and the effect was that the homes sold for 13.4 % above the expected value of the home. In addition, the homes sold 57 days faster than expected. Included in some of the top keyword searches were “subway tiles” and in Dallas the top words were “frame-less shower’ and “granite”. In Dallas a home with frame-less showers can sell 4.6 % above the expected value and 38 days faster so spend your remodel dollars in the right areas for added value.
The barn doors can blend with almost any style and show a great way to combine a full length mirror on the back of a barn door leading into the bath area. Another popular style is to use reclaimed wood to contrast and give texture to a more contemporary look- or in a contemporary frame to add to a rustic décor.
