What makes a home unique and stand out from the crowd?

Searching for a new property is exciting as you plan and consider what your life may be like if you lived in various properties and every so often, a property comes onto the market with something else, something added, something a little extra. These properties stand out from the crowd.
What makes a home unique and stand out from the crowd?
When searching for a new home, you will initially think about location, budget and number of bedrooms. Then, as you progress in your search, you will begin to narrow down your needs. 
Searching for a new property is exciting as you plan and consider what your life may be like if you lived in various properties. But, once your list of needs is narrowed down and you know exactly what you're looking for, all the properties can start to feel repetitive. 

Every home is lovely in its own way. There are gardens, garages, and 3, 4 or even 5 bedrooms. Once you've decided on a location, there isn't much to separate each property.

But, every so often, a property comes onto the market with something else, something added, something a little extra. These properties stand out from the crowd. 

Unique properties are just that, unique. One-off builds, architecturally designed, or period properties filled with character. What if you saw a property that had a gym? A cinema? A bar? 

Imagine a bar in your home for you to entertain friends, cocktail glasses and jewel-toned soft furnishings. Or a cinema room with comfy recliners, a giant screen to watch your favourite movies with the family, and no extortionate pick-and-mix bill!

What about a sauna or hot tub for your very own spa days, maybe even a swimming pool? These features are the magic or added delight that sets a home apart from the competition. 

Why? Because these extras are what make the lifestyle of the property, not just the basics that you expect. If your home has a bar, it's fair to assume that you are the 'hostess with the mostess' and you love to host glamorous fun-filled parties. If you have a cinema, you are most likely a film buff. A music room or a library tells that the occupant of the property is interested in the Arts, playing the piano every day or curling up with a good book and a mug of tea. 

Of course, a cinema room won't necessarily appeal to someone who doesn't like movies, and a bar will not appeal to a teetotaller. But for those that this added extra does appeal to, it will make your home THE property for them. Finding the niche market for your home will ensure that you have no competition, for the perfect buyer wouldn't look twice at the other properties on the market. They want a home that will give them the lifestyle they want - whether it is an at-home spa or a cinema. This added feature will mean that this buyer wouldn't even consider the property without the spa.

What little touches does your home have that make it stand out from the crowd? Lean into that difference and locate your ideal buyer. After all, we know that the buyer that resonates with a property the most is the one that will see the most value in that property and, therefore, will be the one that pays the highest price!
