While some clients talk about downsizing, they still are wanting the amenities!
As we mature and grow into the years of enjoyment, the thought of downsizing tends to come up as a topic. But downsizing doesn't mean giving up on the amenities of comfort, convenience and class.
So what are some of these amenities your buyer may want in their dream home?
Well, how about a customized exercise room. Use that spare bedroom to place that weight training equipment, the cardio machines, soft mats, surround sound and a HDTV. If you have space, how about an outdoor/indoor lap pool and hot tub, that could provide a way to relax and stay in shape.
Next is the master bedroom which may include a fireplace, large walking closets with space for heated mattress pads, warming blankets, robes, towels and of course your wardrobe. For convenience, you could add a laundry room next to the master, remote controlled window treatments and lighting, and a music and the HDTV.
Another feature that seems to be catching on is a convenient, assessable place for storing the quick get away luggage. This way you don't have to stuff that luggage away in attic, basement, or hard to get to closet.
How about converting the bathroom into your own private spa?! Seating in the shower, and extra long hose for the shower head for convenience, and low silhouette showers for easy access.
What about a heated driveway and sidewalks for that home? This could be a lifesaver as well as convenience for preventing slips and falls during the winter, spring or fall (no pun intended!).
Finally, this one was one I hadn't even considered, no-mow lawns. Not rock gardens, but actually green grass that you only mow maybe once a year! Now this one I could get excited about the kind of yard even now! These no-mow lawns are a mix of several slow-growing fescue grasses that create a dense, tough turf. The grasses develop deep roots that allow a tolerance for drought and thrive in shade. These grasses are low maintenance; need no fertilizer, and no watering. What could be more convenient!
Now what are some of your client wants and wishes!
