If you are selling your home, insight as to what buyers are looking for in a home is priceless.
According to the results of the Next Home Survey recently presented by Eliot Nusbaum, executive editor at Better Homes and Gardens magazine, consumers are taking a "cents and sensibilities" approach when buying a home.
For those buyers planning to purchase a new home in the coming months, price, energy-efficiency, organization and comfort are their top priorities. This is in sharp contrast to several years ago, when the focus was on large homes with expensive touches.
The Next Home Survey also found that:
- 87 percent of respondents would like a greener, more energy efficient home.
- 68 percent wanted an outdoor grilling and living area.
- 59 percent wanted a home office.
- 36 percent said their next home would be somewhat smaller or much smaller.
