With 2012 upon us, one of your plans for the New Year may be to buy your first home, make a move-up purchase or find the need to downsize. Whatever the reason might be, buying a home can be such an exciting experience. There are so many choices to consider – and everyone’s needs and lifestyles are different. So, we decided to learn more about what similarities home shoppers share when deciding what’s most important in a home.
We asked our readers to tell us what they were searching for in a new home and the feedback was tremendous. We want to share some of the findings with you.
Most important rooms:
- Kitchen – 90% of respondents
- Master Bedroom – 79% of respondents
- Family Room – 34% of respondents
- Garage – 31% of respondents
- Living Room – 26% of respondents
- Basement – 26% of respondents
It was interesting to learn that rooms like the Dining Room and 1st Floor Bath didn’t seem to sway a home buying decision at all.
Let us know which rooms would affect your decision to buy a home and we would love to know why!
Happy House Hunting!
