SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Home design trends are constantly changing and evolving, so it can be difficult to decide which home improvement projects are worth the time and money. Redfin (www.redfin.com), the next-generation real estate brokerage, dug into listing data to find out which home trends are becoming more popular, which are holding steady and which are a thing of the past.

So, a home could sell faster and for more money if a homebuyer sees that a home was recently upgraded and won’t need to be remodeled anytime soon,” says Timothy Maller, a Redfin real estate agent in Baltimore. “That’s why picking the right home improvement project to tackle before listing could make a big difference in how long the home stays on the market and the final sale price.”
Here are the three top hottest trends to keep in mind for 2017:
2. Smart Home Technology
3. Built-in Bars
