The home features couples debate most
House hunting—much like a relationship—is all about compromise. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day‚ here’s a look at the features most debated by couples shopping for a home1:
- The items couples disagreed upon: a wood-burning fireplace‚ an in-ground pool‚ hardwood flooring‚ an outdoor bar or barbecue area‚ and a finished garage.
- Couples were on the same page when it came to energy-efficient appliances‚ newly renovated bedrooms and bathrooms‚ security systems‚ and finished basements.
- Nearly one in four surveyed said their home does not have all the features their partner considered important.
