2020 Homeowner Wish List – What Buyers Want Now

May 15, 2020

Here’s your 2020 Homeowner’s Wish List, and all good things to keep in mind if you’re thinking of listing.

The experts over at Keeping Current Matters (where, honestly, I grab some of my blog content so I want to give them full credit) created this infographic to show us what home buyers are looking for now, in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis. I’m not surprised that more space and a home gym make the top of the list.

The results came from organizations polling potential buyers. Here’s what they found:

Some Highlights

  • In a recent study by realtor.com, homeowners noted some of the main things they would change about their homes to make them more livable.
  • Not surprisingly, more space, an updated kitchen, and a home gym rose to the top of the list.
  • If you’re thinking of selling this year, having these items in your listing might make your house more desirable than ever to potential buyers.
  • Call me if you have questions about what Santa Fe buyers are specifically looking for. From views to a walk to the Plaza, you might be surprised at what makes the top of my buyers’ lists these day.
