To get a better grasp on what features buyers really want in a home, Zolo Realty surveyed more than 1,800 respondents in January 2019. The results show that buyers are no longer dazzled by HGTV-inspired living spaces or add-on luxuries such as pools.
Turns out homebuyers — both male and female — are more interested in properties with a garage, an en suite and main-floor bathroom and a newer furnace or A/C unit.
“Buyers aren’t foolish. Updating a kitchen and removing walls is a lot of work, but these updates are not as hard or as costly as trying to carve out a bathroom for a master bedroom or building a garage from scratch,” explains Mustafa Abbasi, President of Zolo Realty.
