What buyers want in a home changes all the time. So, the question is—what are home buyers looking for in 2021?

The National Association of Home Builders 2021 What Home Buyers Really Want report (outlined in a recent article from REALTOR® Magazine) explored the features that home buyers find the most desirable in 2021, including:

So, what are the features that home buyers consider most essential in 2021?

  • Laundry room (87 percent)
  • Exterior lighting (87 percent)
  • Ceiling fan (83 percent)
  • Energy Star-rated windows (83 percent)
  • Patio (82 percent)

The report also broke down the most desirable features by category, including room (for example, side-by-side double sinks are the most in-demand feature for kitchens), accessibility (full bath on the main level), and technology (programmable thermostat).

The Takeaway:

So, what does this mean for you? If you’re on the home search, knowing what features are the most in demand can help you when evaluating properties—and if you’re selling, knowing what buyers want in 2021 can help you update and frame your home in a way that’s going to appeal to those buyers.
