Home buyers quizzed about their dream property, have ranked en-suite bathrooms, TV rooms and kitchen islands the most desirable property features a home can contain.
When it comes to the property itself, it seems size isn’t everything, with the majority of respondents saying their dream home would have just four bedrooms, but a large garden was also high on the ‘wish list’.
More luxurious aspects of a dream property that featured prominently in the research include an indoor pool (42%), a dedicated relaxation room (39%), a home gym (32%), cinema (29%), wine cellar (25%), bowling alley (20%) and nightclub or bar (17%).
Features that are perhaps more achievable for the average home seller looking to make their property as attractive as possible to potential buyers include conservatories or orangeries, open fires and wood burning stoves.
Technology also featured heavily on the ‘wish list’, with 38 percent of respondents saying they would want their dream home to contain high-tech security features and 35 percent desiring remote controlled heating, lighting and sounds systems.
Quick Move Now’s Managing Director, Danny Luke, commented:
Ensuite bathrooms, kitchen islands and separate relaxing spaces such as TV rooms have been popular with home buyers for some time, so it’s interesting to see that home buyers don’t stray too far from these fairly mainstream features, even when considering their ‘dream home’.
The findings should encourage those wishing to sell a property and help them to make their property as desirable as possible to potential buyers.
Of course we also see more extravagant features on the list, such as indoor pools, bowling alleys and home nightclubs, but it’s interesting that these feature lower down the list than some more realistic and achievable features.
