Ready to boost your home value as much as possible? With high mortgage interest rates putting a damper on home prices, now is the time to invest in trends that will add value to your home, if you're looking to sell. And luckily, Zillow has released its annual list of data-driven trends that are likely to boost home values in 2024, from pickleball courts to cold plunge pools.
To determine these trends, Zillow analyzed hundreds of home listings on its platform and identified the keywords that are showing up far more often now than they were a year ago.
"When certain keywords appear in a rising share of listings, it's a signal that today's home buyers may be gravitating toward those features," Amanda Pendleton, Zillow's home trends expert, said in a press release. "Real estate agents are uniquely attuned to subtle changes in what buyers want, and they often get a first look at the latest and greatest features going into newly built homes. Savvy listing agents will highlight those trending, in-demand features when marketing a home for sale."
With that in mind, here are the trends Zillow says will be most likely to add value to homes in 2024.
Your own cold plunge pool can be just two-day shipping away. This tub from Arctic Therapy features six-layer insulation to keep water cold for up to four hours. It also comes with a lid to keep out insects and debris.
For a more budget-friendly option, this cold plunge pool is lightweight and portable. It's not as well insulated, but it still features a lid and large capacity to comfortably seat adults up to 6 feet, 7 inches tall.
This set contains a net, paddles, court markers and more — everything you need to set up a full pickleball court in your driveway. See why so many people have embraced this fast-growing sport.
This easy-to-install wall mural comes in four sizes and 20 designs, from florals to fantasy scenes, so you can choose one that really represents your design style and interests.
