barn-door

It turns out homebuyers are really into barn doors. When Zillow looked at design features that sell homes at the best price and with the shortest listing time, that feature topped the list. Anything craftsman-style, like rectangular farmhouse sinks, also got homes off the market at a premium. Zillow Digs screened over 2 million listings for homes sold between January 2014 and March 2016 and looked for the keywords that had the best effect on how much more than the expected price and how much faster they sold.

Here are the top 15 design features:
