REALTOR Magazine just ran a nice article (What Buyers Want) that sheds light on the wish lists and must-haves of the homebuyers.
Super-size me seems to be the theme for what buyers want.
According to research by the National Association of REALTORS, nearly 60 percent of homebuyers are prepared to spend more for a house with an oversized garage; 40 percent would spend more to get a house that’s ready for cable or satellite TV, NAR research shows. Homebuyers are also looking for central air conditioning walk-in closets in the master bedroom, separate showers in the master bath, patios, porches, fencing, backyards with a play area and wiring for high-speed Internet.
Energy efficiency is important, especially for new homes. But size has shown to be even more important.
