The 5 Must-Have Features in Today’s Homes

Many clients often ask me what is in style today given the economic challenges that our country is currently experiencing. Some ask because they plan to make improvements and are concerned that those improvements may not be what a future buyer will look for.  Others ask in order to keep up with the times and take into consideration current styles.

So, I have compiled a brief list from various sources that highlight some of the current themes in building and remodeling.

1. Large Kitchens, With an IslandLarge kitchen with island

As has been the case in the past the kitchen continues to be the main area where buyers are individuals wanting to built a home spend most of their time considering. Granite countertops are a top priority for a lot of move-up buyers and any buyer of a custom home.

2. Energy-Efficient Appliances, High-Efficiency Insulation and High Window Efficiencyenergy efficent applainces is a must

Green features are hot these days and are valued a lot by many buyers. The majority of people are concern about energy costs and these items are of paramount concern.

3. Home Office/Study

With more people wanting to telecommute or operate a home base business the home office/ study is a must.  This allows homeowners the ability to have a designated space in the home that is away from the living area to do business.

4. Main-Floor Master Suite

This is a must feature for empty-nesters and certain other buyers, and appears to be getting more popular in general.  As our population gets older this will become more of a desired feature.

5. Master Suite Soaker TubsMaster Bath soaker

Whirlpools are still desirable for many home buyers and oversize showers with seating areas are also moving up in popularity.

In the end you should first and foremost consider your needs and those of your family above all else.  The good news is that often it is possible for me to match the desires of the client with what is currently desired in the marketplace.  Please let me know your thoughts and comments.
