Homebuyers look to spend their money on energy efficient features, open floor plans and smart storage. A new survey by the National Association of Home Builders released in March examines what homeowners absolutely want in their homes and what they are willing to forego in light of the current economic realities. The survey findings are expected to shape the way homes are built in the future. “People are now more concerned about high-quality design and how to run a household more efficiently. They are not willing to spend money on extra space if they don’t need it.”
Here are the factors that are listed in the survey:
Energy efficiency: Energy Star-rated appliances and windows are at the top of the wish list, as well as new homes with Energy Star label. 9 out of 10 buyers would rather buy a home with energy efficient features and permanently lower utility bills than one without those features that costs 2-3 percent less.
Organization and storage: Homeowners want to manage their homes efficiently, and they want help with organization and storage. Efficient laundry rooms, a linen closet in the bathroom, garage storage and a walk-in pantry were among the features mostly desired.
Open Living rooms and dining rooms: Survey respondents also indicated a preference open spaces that encourage family time. “They would rather have fewer walls with open areas where the family interacts,” Melman says.
