What Do First-Time Homeowners Want?

As a first-time homebuyer, it’s understandable that you would be very selective about the home you purchase. This is likely the largest financial investment you’ve made in your life so far so you want to ensure you’re going to get exactly what you want. That’s why, as a seller, it’s important to be aware of the most desirable features for buyers in today’s market. Check out five below.



    • Location. This one should come as no surprise. Location has always been key. Buyers are looking for low crime rates and nearby stores. Families with young children are looking for great schools and parks nearby. Young professionals are looking for easy access to work, restaurants, and nightlife.

    • Extra storage. A garage with floor space and shelves. An extra bedroom that can be converted. A backyard shed. Or a closet under the stairs. Adequate storage space is highly sought after. Updated kitchen and bathroom. Many buyers are in the market for high-end, modern appliances, finishes, countertops, and more in their kitchens and bathrooms.

    • Large patio or backyard. This feature may make or break a first homeowner’s decision to purchase. Many times, these buyers are coming from smaller living spaces like apartments and are looking for a place to entertain guests, enjoy the fresh air, and play with kids or pets.
