A garage checks in at #1
Pools‚ in-law suites‚ and picturesque views all pale in comparison to the presence of a garage. This is the key finding from a new survey on the features homebuyers value most.1
- Garages are #1 (favored by 45% of respondents) followed by: a master bedroom with en suite (39%) and a main floor bathroom (35%).
- Women want a garage more than men (51% to 41%). Men prefer energy-saving appliances (31%) while women value a fenced-in yard (38%).
- The ideal property of those surveyed: a three-bedroom‚ two-bath home with a master bedroom suite‚ and‚ of course … a garage.
