“In today’s competitive housing market, understanding what homes may command a premium or attract multiple offers can be hugely beneficial to buyers,” Jeremy Wacksman, Zillow Group chief marketing officer, said in a statement. “However, it’s important to keep in mind which features or amenities matter most to you in a home. While a farmhouse sink or butcher block counters may appeal to many millennials and first-time buyers, not everyone may want to pay the premium those features may command.”

While farmhouse-inspired details dominated the top terms on the list, the No. 1 feature that they found made homes worth more were solar panels, a detail that added a 40 percent premium to the home's value.
