Close your eyes and imagine your ideal home. What does it look like? If you see a big master bedroom, a gourmet kitchen, and lots of storage for your wardrobe, you’re not far off from what most homebuyers are looking for in their dream house.
If you’re looking to sell your home or even invest in one, here are some top features you should keep your eye out for:
Open Concept. Homes that offer a spacious living space – floor plans that flow from one room the next and provide more openness from top to bottom get more attention than older houses that lack these features.
Smaller Homes. The larger the home, the more expensive it is to heat, cool, and maintain. Finding the right fit for your lifestyle and family size is important.
Modern Kitchens. From counter tops to cabinets and state-of-the-art appliances, the latest and greatest designs are essential! It must be eye-catching and win the homebuyer’s heart.
Smart storage. Storage and even more storage – that’s what buyers are looking for nowadays. New homes take the lead in this category, as they typically showcase larger walk-in closets and secret pantries.
A splash of color. Always create a balance, but don’t be afraid to go bold! Opt for brighter hues in the kitchen or in liven up the bedroom space with a pop of color. Try the current color of the year – tangerine!
New homes seem to deliver the highly desired features that buyers want, but that shouldn’t stop you from transforming your older home to highlight it’s antique charm or give it a modern twist.
