10 Exterior Home Features That Appeal Most to Homeowners (and potential buyers)

When it comes to your home, first impressions are everything. Trends and styles change, but here are some of the most highly desired exterior home features both homeowners and buyers can agree on.

Curb Appeal

A well-maintained and aesthetically pleasing exterior is a top priority for homeowners and prospective home buyers. This includes well-manicured landscaping (and don’t forget about the backyard), a well-maintained façade, whether that be siding, brick or wood exterior, and an attractive front entrance.

Energy-Efficient Windows and Doors

Energy-efficient windows and doors are sought-after for their ability to improve insulation, reduce energy costs, and enhance the overall comfort of the home.

Did you know that according to Homes.com, the feature that most potential buyers look for the most is large, plentiful windows? Windows topped the charts with over 19% of those surveyed, naming the size of windows as their most important item. Second to that 18% said that the number of windows was also a valuable factor.

Windows play an important part in the look and feel of a home. Not only do windows bring in natural light, but they are also a great way to make a space appear larger, especially in particularly small rooms. Having an abundance of windows also provides great views of the outside, and neighborhood, giving more life to a room.

Outdoor Living Spaces

Homeowners often seek outdoor areas such as patios, decks, or porches, where they can entertain guests, relax, and enjoy the outdoors.

Energy-Efficient Roofing

Energy-efficient roofing materials, such as cool roofs or solar shingles, are desirable for their ability to reduce energy consumption and contribute to sustainability efforts.

Sustainable and Environmentally Friendly Features

Homeowners increasingly value features like rainwater harvesting systems, solar panels, and native landscaping that contribute to eco-friendliness and sustainability.


A functional and well-designed garage is highly desirable for homeowners who need space for parking vehicles and additional storage.

Exterior Lighting

Proper exterior lighting not only enhances the home’s appearance at night but also improves safety and security.

Smart Home Technology

Smart home features, including smart doorbells, security cameras, and automated outdoor lighting, are popular among tech-savvy homeowners seeking to enhance security and convenience.

High-Quality Siding

Durable and visually appealing siding materials, such as fiber cement or vinyl siding, are valued for their low maintenance and longevity.

Low-Maintenance Materials

Homeowners often prefer materials that require minimal upkeep and are resistant to weathering and pests.
