Traditionally, prospective homebuyers have a wish list of features and amenities in mind as they conduct their search for a new residence. Perhaps quartz countertops or a three-car garage or maybe even a backyard pool.
Those looking to build a new home might have incorporated upgrades or extras by the builder to get their dream house. But the white-hot real estate market has changed all that.
