The National Association of Home Builders just surveyed 4,000 recent or likely future homebuyers about a wide variety of home features and upgrades. Laundry rooms scored at the very top in terms of what features people found desirable, because people don’t want to see or navigate around laundry piles. Respondents also liked the wide panoply of energy-saving features available. Hardwood floors, center islands, engineered quartz and double sinks were also considered desirable, but buyers were not impressed by things like cork flooring, wine cellars, elevators or dual toilets.
- This article is focused on a survey carried out that ranked the features home buyers most want using home buyers that have bought a home three years ago.
- One game changer in buying a home is a laundry room. Many persons prefer to have the laundry room in a conveniently located space.
- Second on the list are energy-saving features. Buyers give more prominence to these when buying a home include Energy Star-rated appliances, ceiling fans, and programmable thermostats.
“From hardwood floors to energy-efficient appliances, certain features in a home have the power to win over potential home buyers.”
