My most recent blog series covers some of the top trends predicted for 2015. This week, I’ll be covering 4 more things that home buyers can expect to see in homes on the market.
- Charging stations.
Our society is one that is completely technology-minded and technology-dependent. Home buyers today can expect that there will be plenty of areas for people to set their electronic devices down and charge them when needed, so much so that there will be dedicated space for charging stations. The most popular locations will be home office spaces, as well as kitchen corners, garage areas, and mud rooms.
- Multiple masters.
What’s better than one master suite? How about two. This is predicted to be a popular trend in 2015, which makes homes work better for families with multiple generations living under one roof. Master suites that have adjoining bathrooms are great for families that have aging parents living with them or those that often have out-of-town guests.
- Storage space.
Every home owner wants ample storage space. The trend for 2015 is leaning toward large spaces such as a butler’s pantry with an area for prep or even completely separate rooms for wrapping gifts or crafting.
- No keys? No problem.
Do you lose your keys on a regular basis? Then a keyless entry might be a perfect answer for you. Many builders today are switching to keyless entry systems, which can allow people to open their homes with fingerprint door locking systems. This creates not only convenience simply because no keys are required, but it also provides an added safety feature because only those with saved fingerprints in the database can enter the home.
Home trends are interesting to watch, but be mindful of what your budget is and what things are “musts” rather than just “wants” in a home.
