What home feature do buyers desire the most? ....A laundry room.
Yes, a laundry room!
They consider it the home feature most desirable, according to a recent survey from the National Association of Home Builders.
93 % of buyers surveyed said they wanted a laundry room, and 57 % of those consider it downright essential.
And they don’t want to walk up and down the stairs, 70 % of buyers want their laundry rooms on the 1st floor.
Ceiling fans are add-on buyers are looking for (50% consider them a must-have).
The kitchen also continues to transform from a place where mom made meals to a family gathering spot, where a family can cook, eat, entertain, help the kids with homework and pay the bills.
Adding any kind of table or island with stools or chairs for people to sit and dedicating a cabinet for paper work can make a big difference in how the kitchen space is utilized.
Here’s the list of the 10 home features buyers consider most essential in a new home.
1. Laundry room: 57 %
2. Exhaust fan in the bathroom: 53 %
3. Ceiling fans: 48 %
4. Double sink in the kitchen: 44 %
