What’s on Home Shoppers’ Wish Lists

Tips to Listing Your Las Vegas Home

Listing your home can be a daunting process.  A new realtor.com® survey reveals the top desires of home buyers today. More than half of home buyers say they’re on the hunt for a three-bedroom home, and 75% want a 2 bath home as well. The survey also showed a strong demand for townhouses and row homes among younger home shoppers, as 40 percent said they are looking for a townhome or row home to purchase. However, as home buyers age, single-family homes clearly are the top preference.

Here’s an overview of some of the top features that emerged on buyers’ wish-lists, according to the survey:The most-searched attributes at realtor.com®: Large backyards, garages, and updated kitchens. These three attributes were popular across all age groups. Younger home buyers with young children showed the most desire for finding a large yard and the greatest interest in living near a good school district. The least-searched features among buyers: a guesthouse, mother-in-law suite, solar panels, and a “man cave.”

The most desired home style: Ranch homes
Forty-two percent of home shoppers say they’re looking for a ranch home, the clear leader. The second most common home style was a contemporary home at 28 percent, followed by Craftsman and Colonial styles.

The favorite room in the home: Kitchens
Eighty percent of home buyers ranked the kitchen as one of their three favorite rooms in a home, followed by master bedroom (49 percent) and living room (42 percent). (However, shoppers over 55 years old preferred garages over living rooms.)
