Nearing the end of a bizarre year, home buyers have changing needs for their new spaces. Sellers, take notice. Over the past six months, the course of daily life has greatly changed and, with COVID-19 still present as autumn approaches, home buyers’ desires have shifted accordingly.
4 Attributes Fall Buyers Want in Homes
Interested in sell your home? Here are a couple features home buyers are on the lookout for when they tour houses this fall. Consider giving these spaces extra love and attention when getting ready to list a house for sale.
1. Flexible spaces
Homes now work as office spaces and classrooms while still being the place to rest at the end of the day. Home buyers are searching for interior layouts that can conform to the changing times. Having multiple spaces to conduct business, take calls or complete classes – while a family member cooks in the kitchen – feels essential when multiple people are home throughout the day.
Desirable multipurpose spaces can include extra bedrooms – like having a guest room that can operate as a workspace – and finished basements.
2. Energy-efficient features
With winter closer than you think, interested home buyers are searching for energy-efficient features for a sustainable household. With so much more time being spent at home these days, everyone is likely to use resources like water and electricity more than ever.
Some in-demand features that help reduce utility bills include insulated windows, updated appliances and smart thermostats.
3. Room to workout
Boutique fitness classes and destination gyms dominated the workout space. Ever since the onset of COVID-19, however, there is a resurgence in the need for home gyms. And, even as some fitness studios have taken their classes to online platforms, people are rolling out yoga mats on their living room floors with no other place to find Zen.
When looking for homes this fall, interested buyers would like a space to workout inside the house, especially with colder weather soon impeding on outdoor recreation.
4. Extra storage
Pick up a new hobby recently? Most people are maxed out on storage space and are seeking even more room to store their new equipment. Increased closet space, attics and garages continue to be desired elements for those looking for a new home this fall.
