5 Features that Homebuyers are Looking For


Open Plan Kitchen/ Dining Area


Formal dining rooms seem to be a thing of the past, so for the millennial buyer, or for families with young kids, the ability to maintain a flow from kitchen to dining area is always a plus. In addition, when entertaining guests or hosting a party, a spacious, open-plan kitchen can be make or break.


Energy Efficiency

As energy costs and interest in environmental issues rise, homebuyers are looking for ways to save money whilst also doing their bit for the environment. Features such as underfloor heating, energy-saving lightbulbs and water-saving showers would all appeal to a new generation of energy and eco-conscious buyers.


Natural Light


A large amount of natural light in a home has many benefits, including creating an illusion of more living space, better views of the outdoors and having a positive effect on our mood. Also, on a similar note to the above, more natural light means less electricity usage and therefore more cost savings.


Separate Utility Room


Keeping the dirty laundry out of the family communal living and eating areas is an important feature for a lot of homebuyers. Whether it’s a separate room or a closed off space, somewhere that the clothes can be washed, dried and stacked and muddy football boots can be cleaned offers a lot of convenience for homebuyers.


Adequate Storage Space


Whether the home is big or small, efficient and well-thought-out storage space is a big selling point for homebuyers. Maximising use of space is important, so unique and innovative storage solutions that will allow homebuyers to stay neat and organised is a must when considering the interior of a home.
