Must Haves for Home Buyers…

These are some “must-haves” according to the State Farm Insurance Company newsletter…

The amenities topping the 2007 Profile of Buyers’ Home Feature Preferences.

  • Energy Efficiency for New Homes topped the list at 65%.
  • Oversize Garages with space for two or more vehicles ranked at 57%.
  • Walk-In Closets was an important feature for 53% of buyers.
  • Other features that were very important in home buyers were, Hardwood Floors at 28% and Granite Countertops at 23%. 

Another trend that buyers are looking for is, bigger living spaces and fewer bedrooms. These features have changed since the 2004 survey.  What do you think?
