Kid-friendly features that sell homes faster

By Zillow

Listing keywords indicating nearby parks, bonus space, and pools are some of the hottest for attracting home shopping families.

Families should expect to pay more for kid-friendly features, with listings that mention “treehouse” or “garage” associated with a 2.2% sale premium.

Kid-friendly homes are also selling quicker than expected. Homes with a backyard mentioned in the listing description are selling more than five days faster.

Buyers looking to snag a child-friendly home near a park or with a treehouse better be prepared to act fast.

Highlighting outdoor, family-friendly features in online listing descriptions helps homes sell more quickly than when indoor amenities are highlighted, a clear signal of the high demand families place on outdoor space. Listings mentioning a backyard sold 5.2 days faster than expected, and homes featuring a sandbox (4.5 days quicker) and playground (2.5 days) also sold more quickly.
