Does your home have an outdoor TV or even an outdoor shower? If so, it may enhance the price when you decide to sell. 

A recent Zillow analysis examined listing language and sales performance from thousands of for-sale homes in 2023. Homes with outdoor features like TVs sold for upwards of 3 percent or $10,749 above their original list price, on average. 

Other listing language that seems to enhance home prices, per the report:

  • Outdoor shower -- 2.6% premium
  • She shed -- 2% premium
  • Pizza oven -- 2% premium

Zillow also points out that terms mentioned on social media sites like TikTok may also help a home sell faster. 

"Certain trendy or viral features can attract more competing buyers, contributing to a speedier sale," the report stated. "Rounded corners, popular in contemporary furniture design and now architecture, can help a home sell six days faster than similar homes. Homes that mention a plant ledge in their listing description get snapped up more than five days faster than expected."
