When the pandemic began, many of our day-to-day activities – from work to school to socializing to exercising – were abruptly moved home. At the start, we made do with what we had, setting up laptops on the kitchen table and doing yoga in the guest room. Nearly two years later, things are different, and homebuyers want dedicated spaces for all their at-home activities.
According to realtor.com, there are a few common items that buyers have on their “must-have” lists. (If you or a client finds a home that checks every box, but cost or credit is a concern, call Slow Flip to discuss our contract for deed option!)
What Homebuyers Want in 2022
Dedicated Office Spaces
As more companies announce permanent work-from-home or hybrid policies, employees are thinking long-term. A dedicated office space improves productivity, and allows you to close the door on work when the day is through.
Closed Floor Plans
Open floor plans are great – until everyone in your family is at home, trying to work or learn or exercise or sleep or play at the same time. Facing the reality that we’ll all be home together more often, today’s homebuyers want more walls.
Outdoor Living Spaces
If you’re always home, where do you go to escape and unwind? The backyard! Homebuyers want a comfortable, luxurious and functional outdoor space to cook, gather, and relax. In addition, more people have turned to gardening, and want enough space to plant.
After cooking every meal, making every snack, and mixing every drink of the past two years, homebuyers want a kitchen that functions exactly as they need it to.
Home Gyms and Wellness Spaces
Gyms have reopened, but many people have grown accustomed to the privacy and convenience of exercising at home. A dedicated workout or wellness space is on the top of many homebuyers’ lists.
