What Makes a Home More Valuable

The value of a home is subjective, according to a recent article in Inman News. Price and cost does not always equal value, and there can be any number of reasons why that’s the case, said Hank Miller, Inman contributor and author. He goes on to write that the motivations and desires of buyers and sellers present a number of variables that make it hard to predict what people look for and what makes a home more valuable to the specific person.  The concept of “value in use” argues that prospective buyers look for features that fit their lifestyle, a desirable location and a design aesthetic that appeals to them.
