    Are you thinking about selling your Vancouver luxury real estate? There are some surprising features that boost the value of your home and make it more appealing to potential buyers. Get ahead before you list your Vancouver property by adding these valuable features:

    Old-World Trees

    It’s no surprise that trees, especially old, shady trees, add a romantic quality to any yard, and provide much needed shade in the hot summer months...not to mention privacy. There’s something about trees that has always been appealing to homeowners, so expect a 10%–15% increase in value.

    A Wine Room

    If your home doesn’t already have a wine room or cellar, consider building one that will make even the most astute sommeliers happy. One of the reasons that wine cellars add value to the home is buyers in the luxury market expect them. Even if they aren’t necessarily wine drinkers themselves, a wine room is a point of pride.

    Separate Living Units

    Giving your guests the privacy and accessibility of their own unit is not only incredibly convenient, it’s also a not-so-difficult way to increase the value of your luxury property by up to 10%. Speak with a trusted contractor who can give you an estimate for the cost of the update to find out if it’s worth it.

    Beach Scenery

    Maybe this isn’t so surprising. If you live in West Vancouver, you’re in luck. Since the beginning of time, houses situated within a kilometre of water will significantly increase the value of your property–but houses that sit at the edge of the ocean are valued even higher. Homebuyers looking for West Vancouver homes for sale will consider the proximity to water a main priority. Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do to change this feature.
