Santa Cruz Buyers’ Home Feature Preferences & Trends
Buyers for your home in Santa Cruz, may be interested in more than just the number of bedrooms and baths, reported the National Association of Realtors® in their just released survey results. The 2013 Profile of Buyers’ Home Feature Preferences study studied trends in home buying over the two year period ending in 2012 and gave some insight you may want to consider when selling your Santa Cruz home.
While location is always a factor in home buying, the study showed that recent home purchases averaged home sizes of 1,860 square feet. Many of the homes were newer too, with the typical home purchased having been built in 1996, and more than half of the homes bought being single story.
Depending on the area of your home, different features are more highly valued.
Hardwood floors, updated kitchens and bathrooms, stainless steel appliances are a much loved feature in Santa Cruz homes. Garages, and other storage was determined to be needed across the nation, with 78 percent of recent home buyers requiring garages and 39 percent of home buyers requiring a walk in closet in the master bedroom.
