Have you been wondering what most homebuyers want in their dream home?  Homes.com has your answer!

We recently conducted a survey of potential homebuyers across the country – asking them to let their imaginations run wild, to find out what they want in a family home. The results showed that the American Dream of home ownership is anything but lost; it’s still out there in full force!  As a real estate agent or mortgage lender, it’s good to know what homebuyers desire, so you can better connect with them.  Now, it’s time to share the results with you.

Home buyers in America want:
Convenience and comfort. Americans want to feel like they have everything they need, in their home.  An overwhelming majority of survey-takers said they prefer a single-family detached home in the country with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Talk about convenience! And when it comes to amenities, walk-in closets, en-suite bathrooms, and fireplaces – top the list of conveniences that homebuyers are looking for.

Flexible spaces and choices. According the survey, homebuyers want to be in control of how they use their space. Room choices like sun rooms, basements, and screened-in porches allow folks to let their creative flag fly. They want to have the freedom to transform a room to meet their specific needs as opposed to finding a house with specific rooms that are already created to serve a single purpose.

Outdoor amenities. According to the survey, Americans want to enjoy the great outdoors. You can’t go wrong with porches, decks, big back yards, pools, and patios. The more outdoorsy the home, the better.

This survey is just one of the ways Homes.com wants to help professionals like you and consumers alike in pursuing the American Dream. To see how the rest of the survey breaks down and to take a peek into the mind of the modern-day homebuyer, check out this helpful infographic of the results.
