Yes indeed they are very popular with today's buyers. To know what features buyers love, I would recommend that you visit a "new Home" development and take a tour of the Model homes. Quite a bit of research goes into what a builder will put into a new home, so you might as well take advantage of that.
If you can, try to match the model features as close as possible in your property.
My 2 cents.

It is! Kitchens are a focal point and granite is what any investor will put into a home that they are trying to sell. It is also what a builder will put into the models of new homes! It looks great and has come down in price, or so it seems! Great question! Thank you for the opportunity to share my opinion!
