Some the features that increase property values are obvious like a remodeled bathroom, a modern kitchen, or a sought-after neighborhood. But here are a few features and circumstances you have not have realized can affect property values.
The neighbors: Not every neighborhood or community has an HOA that can keep the neighbors from going overboard with decorations or neglecting to care for their home. Homes adjacent to crazy neighbors can potentially be undervalued.
Trendy groceries and coffee: Recent statistics suggest that if your home is a short walk from popular grocery stores like Whole Foods or coffee chains like Starbucks, it can actually appreciate faster than the national average.
Mature trees: A big beautiful tree in the front yard is enviable, and it's not something that can be easily added to any home. Homes with mature trees tend to get a little boost in value.
Parking: This isn't too much of an issue if you live in the suburbs or in a rural area, but residents in dense cities can have real problems with parking, and homeowners might need to rent a spot just to guarantee a place to park each night. That's why having guaranteed parking in urban areas will raise property values.
The front entrance: First impressions matter to buyers-many will cross a home off their list within 10 seconds of stepping through the front door. An appealing front door, a friendly entryway, and a functioning doorbell are all necessities for getting top dollar.

""Amanda Phillips did an outstanding job helping my wife and I sell our townhome. She was very helpful every step of the way. She organized and made appointments for getting the staging people to come in and tell us how to best stage our home. She also was very easy to get in touch with every time we had a question or needed to get in touch with her. She made sure to have our listing in all the right places to get maximum exposure which resulted in us getting multiple offers and having it sold in under a week. We were very happy with everything she did with helping us sell this home and with her help in finding and purchasing our new home. She has been made the whole experience as fun and stress free as possible and we can’t imagine going through it with anyone else. When we get ready to find a new home again she will definitely be our first choice in a real-estate agent.""
