As we all navigate the “new normal”, future homeowners have started to navigate their own priority lists as they search for their new home. Here are three ways that sellers can attract the “new normal” homebuyer: 

Work From Home Spaces

Home offices have always been on the list for some, but now, more than ever, a dedicated space is a must have for home searchers. The new dedicated work from home workspace must be fully functionable and as impressive as a regular office space. proper seating, work surfaces, lighting, acoustics, and temperature control are all things to think about when building a home office to impress.

Reimagined Layout

For most of the Aughts, an open, multi-use, layout has been the desired floorplan, however, builders are starting to see a push back toward clearly defined room layout. As the whole family spends more time at home, homeowners are appreciating the time and space they have to themselves. Look for some creative ways to keep the functionality of an open floorplan but also the space for yourself. 

Healthy Touches

There are many ways to upgrade the details of your home in a healthy yet luxurious way. Antibacterial and antimicrobial surfaces, such as porcelain tiles, quartz, granite, are among popular requests according to architectural digest. Touchless faucets are gaining popularity, with Moen, Kohler, and Delta offering highly rated automatic tap options. Other useful upgrade ideas may include setting up mudrooms as makeshift spaces to fully equipped transition spaces, and secure areas;">Whether you are thinking of buying or selling, these three details will most likely have impact in your transaction process. Take a look at some of our listings to see if you can find some spaces ready for you or with the space to make it your “new normal” happy place.
