Does Architecture Affect the Value of Your Home?


It’s important to know whether or not your home is at a disadvantage due to the style of its architecture.

Many aspects of your home affect its value; this week, we’re going to explore the influence of architecture.  So many different architectural styles exist within America’s real estate market that it can be difficult to keep track of how well certain homes sell.  It’s important to know whether or not your home is at a disadvantage due to the style of its architecture.  If you’re curious about your home’s architecture affecting its value, read on.

Craftsman Style


This is a common design you probably see quite frequently.  It can be described as a two story home with a porch, an imbedded garage, and varying roof shapes.  Many types of homes can be described as craftsman, and they can often be disguised as other styles.  But don’t be fooled–craftsman style homes are viable for being exactly what a buyer would never want.  This large-style home with two stories could turn away small families, so demographic is a big factor in sellability.




This architecture can be described as modern, with many straight lines and flat roofs, with large windows.  While the designs are gorgeous and appear sleek, as if they’re out of a magazine for the rich, they aren’t very practical.  For this reason, they tend to turn away those buyers who are more old-fashioned.  Buyers who aren’t interested in modern aesthetics, but would rather have a more traditional home style, aren’t going to be uninterested.




A split-level is a rather old style of home that can turn away buyers searching for something new.  Their cookie-cutter designs are not coveted by newer generations of families.  They’re also incredibly difficult to renovate, making it impossible to improve their designs for the market.  The extra steps can also cause accessibility issues–most split-level homes have a staircase immediately after the front door that must be used in order to reach any part of the house.  This is not only tedious, but problematic for any buyers who have limited mobility.
