What are Buyers Looking For?

As we continue to explore what our new normal looks like, buyers are shifting their perspectives as well. 

Scroll on to see to get a peek at what buyers are looking for in a new home. 




This one doesn't come as much of a surprise. More and more individuals are working from home, and feel the need to have a private office space to take zoom calls and have a little quiet time to focus. 





Stay at home orders? Not a problem when you have a spacious back yard to roam around in. Outdoor space is no longer taken for granted with public spaces being limited. A larger yard is high on the wish lists of buyers these days. 



Overall, buyers are looking for more room. Family space is essential, especially when you're only seeing each other for extended amounts of time. A space to socialize and bond as a family is so important to what makes a house a home. 




Don't have room for a yard? A secure front porch space is also at the top of the list for buyers. Being able to spend time outside the home has become increasingly important.
