The new generation of home buyers grew up with smart phones, apps and internet. They are used to having technologies that make their lives easier and more convenient so it is not surprising for them to wish for a home with these technologies installed.
1. Media Room
Many buyers prefer homes that have a private room with great quality surround sound system equipment, large flat screen TV and the latest A/V device.
Some buyers are not satisfied with having just one high tech room. They prefer their entire residence to be installed with the latest automated system. Given the significance of technology will continue to grow; investing in a smart home is a wise decision.
2. Home Offices
A home office is one of the top requirements for most of the new generation buyers. To lessen the risk of deterring some home buyers, do not create a home office with built-ins. If there are numerous rooms, then these buyers can do the customization of the home office themselves. They will want an office where there is enough space for their printers, laptops and other work related activities.
3. Hardwood Floors
Buyers are showing a preference for gleaming hardwood floors as they make the rooms look new, clean and less confined. Some buyers just do not like the feel of stepping into someone else’s carpet no matter how clean and attractive it is.
If you are the buyer and see a home you love yet you are turned off by the carpeting, do not move on to the next house right away. Try to see what’s underneath since there is a chance it has a hardwood floor which you will love.
4. Urban Areas
Most of the new generation of home buyers prefer to live in big cities with small urban areas. These are the buyers who want to live in areas where there is potential to meet new people and stay active. Aside from buildings that are near the transit hubs, they want those with the essential convenience of a local gym, spa, business centre, etc.
As the preference of home buyers change, so should be the home. Shrewd investment in the possible alterations on the home you plan to sell can reap big rewards on sale day. Although real estate has its ups and downs, it is still a very attractive venture. Supply the demands of the new generation of buyers and you will not only sell your home in as short a time possible but also get a great deal out of it.
