The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) recently released a survey earlier this year which looked at the various home features buyers consider as “essential” and “desirable.” Among the priorities listed in the survey, replacement windows, especially energy-efficient ones, ranked second out of the 175 features included in the study.
What Do Home Buyers Really Want?
A total of 4,000 respondents took part in this survey, with the results released in a report simply titled “What Home Buyers Really Want.” These individuals either purchased a home over the last three years or are planning to do so within the next three. They were asked to rank home features based on how essential they were when making a home purchase.
The high-ranking features, which included ENERGY STAR®-certified windows, indicated the respondents’ need to save on utility costs, add extra storage and make the outside of the home look neat. Surprisingly enough, the laundry room topped the list at 91%. Other features in the top 10 include, among others, the patio, garage storage, exterior lighting and hardwood flooring.
