What home features are most popular in your state?

Realtor.com did a post about the different types of features favored in different parts of the country & in different states. I had to laugh as here in Illinois we are a steadfast bunch - give us that basement & BRICK. The more b-r-i-c-k the better & the bigger the basement the more storage for our 'stuff'. They didn't make the brick connection in this article but I can say with certainty that people here want some type of 'fireproof stuff' on the front or surrounding thier homes. It can be brick or various type of stone but whatever is quarried is just as ok as the good old fireproof brick.

Think it's a throwback from the Chicago Fire?  I think it's competely true as most homes are at least 50% or more brick in the city of Chicago itself.

Interesting to see what's popular in different states. You can scroll down & then hover to see what is popular in each state.

Hi Lyn, Very interesting about the brick!  Over here in California, particularly in Silicon Valley, I'm finding that being close to top rated schools, new updated kitchen and updated bathrooms, wide open living space and ample light are pretty close to the top of the list over here :)

Sophia:  Said granite counters were in 10% of listings in CA. Sounds about right for most areas.

Good Tuesday morning Lyn. Brick veneer siding is popular in upper end properties here.
