What Do Buyers Look for in a Home?

What do Buyers Look for in a Home?

What do Buyers really look for and want when they are buying a home?  That is the million dollar question that every seller of real estate would like to know.  There was a recent survey conducted that asked home buyers just that and the results are in.  Topping the list was energy star rated appliances and an energy star rated home - Home buyers are going Green in big numbers and want energy efficient homes or Green Homes

Here are the Top 11 Features Buyers look for in a Home:

what buyers look for in a home



The top features that buyers look for when buying a home are not surprising. Buyers want a comfortable, functional home.  They don't necessarily want over the top finishes or amenities - just the basics and a nice, well thought out place to hang their hat.  

I have found that kitchens are always hugely important to buyers.  Kitchens have become the real showplace for a home.  Buyers aren't looking for a formal sitting room or extravagant living room - kitchens are where everybody wants to be and always ends up.  Having a kitchen bar or room for a table so people can easily sit and chat while making dinner is attractive.  Stainless steel appliances, granite, marble, or other stone counter tops are very popular.  

Each home has it's own character and it is always fun to find just the right fit for a home buyer - that is one of the reasons I love my job!
