The features in your home that sell the lifestyle and will attract the perfect buyer: Games Rooms

We have come to expect a certain minimum standard in a home. At the very least, you would expect a kitchen, bathroom, a couple of bedrooms and some living space. Occasionally, a property comes to the market with something a little different. An unusual room that provides a different lifestyle to the occupants.

When marketing a property for sale, viewers are comparing the size and perhaps the style and quality of these rooms. You would be shocked, I'm sure, to see a property on the market without a kitchen, for example. So, we look at the fittings, the style, the decor and the overall appearance of these rooms and compare them with other properties we've seen. Over time we learn what we like and don't like, narrowing our search to find the perfect property. 

Occasionally, a property comes to the market with something a little different. An unusual room that provides a different lifestyle to the occupants.

This difference, quirkiness, and individuality make this particular home stand out from the crowd. It encourages more viewings from potential buyers as this property has something a little special that is worth looking at. It will appeal to the exact right buyer for that home. And as a result, it could mean that the property value is higher because of its USPs.

This article will look at adding a games room to your home. Evenings spent entertaining friends and playing games, most likely with a few cocktails, can bring endless fun and frivolity to your life. It is this potential that appeals to buyers when they are searching for a new home.

When a property comes onto the market with a games room, the agents can highlight this feature in their listing. This is a fantastic way to show potential buyers what lifestyle they could have if they lived in this home. But even if you are not trying to sell your property, you could have great fun with your family and friends if you have a games room.

From traditional pub games such as darts and pool to cards or casino games, you could easily set up one of the rooms in your home as a games room for a relatively small investment. 

Imagine having friends over for dinner and then having nostalgic games late into the evening. Perhaps you loved arcade games as a child and want to purchase an old machine that plays Pac-man or Space invaders. Or maybe you love the casino and have a poker table to enjoy a game or two. 

A games room can be centred around whatever games you like, but whatever you choose, you can be sure that it will bring you and your family endless fun and could increase the value of your home too! It's a win-win!

Let us know if you have an unusual room or feature in your home; we'd love to hear from you.
