The Top Features Home Buyers Want This Spring

Aimed at discovering which home features are most and least popular with home buyers this spring, a recent survey polled real-estate professionals across the country about today’s top trends. The results reveal that the typical American home buyer wants a house that doesn’t require a lot of work and has many updated features and energy-saving appliances. In fact, a move-in ready home was near the top of the list, according to surveyed real-estate agents. Upgraded windows and light fixtures were also among the top features, as was a location near public transportation and large closets. An open floor plan, granite counter tops, wood floors, and a two-story home with a bedroom on the main floor rounded out the list of hot features among home buyers. But participating agents didn’t just reveal the most desirable features, they also listed the home features least popular with today’s buyer. On that list, popcorn ceilings, carpet, small kitchens and bathrooms, low ceilings, and a lack of parking ranked high. According to the survey, home buyers also don’t like loud streets, wallpaper, and dated homes. More here.
