Whether you’re thinking of selling soon or have an eye on remodeling with solid return-on-investment potential, think about which features make your home oh-so-desirable when it’s time to list.  An analysis of the listings over the past five years found that the following items were listed most often, solidifying a venerable spot among buyers’ favorites:

1. Fireplace

2. Wood floor

3. Carpet

4. Granite counter

5. Stainless steel appliances  

6. Open floor plan

7. Walk-in closet

8. Formal dining room

9. Vaulted ceiling

10. Open kitchens

Do trends lose steam? Oak and cherry cabinets had a strong foothold in the cabinet marketplace but are no longer popular.
