Real estate may be all about "location, location, location," but some local amenities can influence a home's value more than others.
Talking up your house's position in a good school district is a solid win, for example, but so is mentioning that there's a Trader Joe's nearby. (Amid the "Pokemon Go" craze, some sellers are even trying to garner interest by pointing out in their listings the home's proximity to in-game landmarks.)
"It's important to understand what the neighborhood is like, in addition to the house," said Lynnette Bruno, a vice president at Trulia.com.
It's unclear whether particular amenities drive up home prices or those businesses are drawn to already up-and-coming neighborhoods. But if one of these four amenities is nearby, consider highlighting it in your listing.
