Investopedia explains 'Amenity'


By making improvements to a property (tangible amenities) or by the property being located in a more desirable area, real estate developers and hotel owners can increase the price that they sell or rent a piece of property for. Home buyers should consider what the amenity is truly worth to them, since some amenities carry ongoing costs, such as a swimming pool.
