5 Features Home Buyers Are Looking For

An upgraded kitchen and lots of storage space will always be on the Must Have list of home buyers, but what else are home buyers looking for while house hunting? Surveys by the National Associate of Home Builders show the latest in demand features that buyers are looking for!

1. Walk in Closets

Large closets, particularly in the master bedroom is on the top priorities list for home buyers. Many even said they would sacrifice another home feature in order to have a walk in closet in the master bedroom.

2. Laundry Rooms

Buyers are looking for more than just a place to put their washer and dryer. They want upgraded laundry rooms; complete with built-in ironing boards, space for folding clothes, extra storage and upgraded appliances.

3. Energy Efficiency

Home buyers are looking to cut utility costs, and energy efficiency appliances and products can be one way to do that. Low e-windows, Energy Star appliances and programmable thermostats are more in demand than ever.

4. Great Rooms

Large open spaces that often merge dining rooms, living rooms and kitchens, continue to be in high demand among home buyers. It is an area where everyone can come together, where kids can do their homework, and dinner can be prepared.

5. Taller First Floor Ceilings

More home buyers want the first floor to stretch beyond the typical eight foot ceiling. The taller ceilings can open up living rooms, dining rooms and other spaces on the first floor. Many home buyers are not looking for tall ceilings on the second floor, as they want a more cozy feeling.
