4 Things Buyers Are Looking For In New Listings

FEATURES BUYERS ARE WILLING TO PAY A PREMIUM FOR IN THE CURRENT REAL ESTATE MARKET– TRENDS HIGHLIGHTED BY NEWPORT INTERIOR DESIGNER ALLY MALONEY OF MALONEY INTERIORS

LARGE KITCHENS

While a chef’s kitchen has often been at the top of buyer wishlists, the current push to spend more time at home has buyers searching for even larger kitchens optimized for cooking frequent meals. Less eating out at restaurants means more family dinners enjoyed at home- with a large, updated kitchen playing a crucial role in easing this transition.

A MEDIA ROOM

Buyers are looking for increased amenity offerings in new listings in order to make the best of the ‘new normal’. A bonus room staged as a media room or an actual home theater will garner immense interest for new listings that are able to boast these offerings.

INDOOR-OUTDOOR LIVING

Think: pools, large decks, outdoor fireplaces, and large yards. With people traveling less, outdoor living spaces that boast resort like amenities are sure to catch the attention of buyers.

HOME GYMS

Staying fit while staying home can be a challenge- while home gyms waned in popularity over the last decade, a new resurgence of people snatching up every piece of fitness equipment they can get their hands on indicates an increased interest in new listings that include home gyms.
