The value of a home is subjective, according to a recent article in Inman News. Price and cost does not always equal value, and there can be any number of reasons why that’s the case, said Hank Miller, Inman contributor and author. He goes on to write that the motivations and desires of buyers and sellers present a number of variables that make it hard to predict what people look for and what makes a home more valuable to the specific person. The concept of "value in use" argues that prospective buyers look for features that fit their lifestyle, a desirable location and a design aesthetic that appeals to them.

What makes a home more valuable

Real estate is fairly personal but there are some features that stand out in any home or property.

  1. Open floor plan
  2. Ample closet space
  3. Outdoor features, like pools and barbecues
  4. Garages
  5. Quality of construction and design

The diversity offered at a master-planned community gives buyers the choice of features, lot location and size and access to the resort-style amenities like pools, sports facilities and outdoor entertaining. Vintage Oaks has 1-to-14 acre homesites in gated and non-gated neighborhoods. The convenient location gives residents access to both Austin and San Antonio for nightlife, jobs and activities for all lifestyles. If you don't want to leave the community, enjoy the natural beauty of the Hill Country from your own backyard.
