The biggest consideration is, what do the other homes in the area have? As an owner or seller of a property, you want your property to “conform” as much as possible to what is prevalent in the comparables.
If this house is in a cookie-cutter subdivision, this should be pretty easy to find out. If it’s not, look in the MLS or ask some agents that sell houses in the area what the other houses have and what their buyers would prefer.
