a competitive Australian property market, you'll often find that it's
the finer details that make a home stand out from the pack. Whether it's
a stunning bathroom, spacious walk-in-robe or inviting outdoor area,
these little luxuries will capture the hearts and imaginations of
property investors and other prospective buyers at an open home.
This is why, on your Studio M selections day,
your consultant will help you weigh up any optional extras that don't
just appeal to you now but could increase the sale price or rental yield
of your home in future. Even if it's your 'forever home', it will
always pay to make sure the design details you select align with your investment goals and the amount of time owner-occupiers expect to live in the home.
Here, we speak to Metricon's Studio M manager and interior designer Marissa Bonacci on the features and details that will help your new home stand out like a diamond in the real estate rough.

The saying that 'kitchens sell homes' rings true for many Australian real estate agents and
has encouraged homeowners across the country to improve their offering.
"Stone benchtops were considered a luxury item a few years ago, now
it's normal," Bonacci says.
