SALEM OREGON HOME SELLERS-WHAT DO BUYERS WANT??

SALEM OREGON HOME SELLERS, JUST WHAT IS IT THAT BUYERS WANT THESE DAYS?

22276973_thm

As your Salem Oregon Real Estate Agent, I’ve been doing a series of articles for preparing your home to sell for top dollar the last few weeks, and I thought the latest report from the National Association of Realtors would be an interesting addition.   Today in Realtor Mag they reported on the top 10 things that buyers want according to Paul Cartus of Avid Ratings who conducts an annual survey of what buyer preferences for must-haves in new homes.

  1. Large kitchens with islands
  2. Energy efficiency including appliances, insulation and windows
  3. Home offices
  4. Main-floor master suite
  5. Outdoor living space
  6. Ceiling fans
  7. Soaking tub in master suite and/or large shower with seating area
  8. Stone and brick exteriors instead of stucco or vinyl
  9. Community walking paths and playgrounds
  10. Two car garages, however three car garages are even more desirable

So, I would like to hear from local buyers and Real Estate Agents from all over.  Do you agree with these must-haves?  I do get many requests for large kitchens with islands, energy efficiency, home offices, at least a two car garage, master on the main, and both a soaking/jetted tub and shower in the master bath.  What are your top requests?
