Today, home buyers are very specific about the "must have" features that will make a house their home. We've rounded up the top must haves in today's new homes.
1. Laundry room
Home buyers are looking for more than just a closet, they want a separate room for things like folding and ironing that help keep laundry out of the living space.
2. Energy efficiency
Today, buyers are concerned about energy efficiency and how their energy usage will be in a new home. They look for energy efficient appliances, windows and doors.
3. Outdoor living space
A backyard with nice landscaping and possibly a fence where the buyer can see themselves hanging out is a key selling feature.
4. Eat-in kitchen
Eat-in kitchens are great for families, especially with children. Parents can cook and work in the kitchen while keeping an eye on children or communicating with guests at the eat-in table or bar.
5. Main floor master suite
For several years, second floor masters were popular - as were second floor laundry rooms. However, families are finding that as children grow older, parents prefer main floor master suites.
