Top 5 Home Features to Attract Luxury Buyers
From decked out chef’s kitchens, tech-friendly spaces to resort-caliber swimming pools and landscaping, these are the features and amenities that appeal to luxury home buyers.
SMART HOME TECHNOLOGY
According to a survey done by the Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, smart home technology is becoming increasingly popular among luxury home buyers. So much so that 87 percent of respondents said they would not live in a home that wasn’t tech-friendly.
Examples of smart features include a smart thermostat that controls the overall climate of a home, in which owners can warm up a living room before their guests arrive with just a few taps on their smartphone, an in-wall smart lighting kit for efficient connected lighting both indoor and out, or a smart bed that helps users get good quality sleep.
An updated kitchen will not only raise a home’s price tag, but it will attract high-end buyers as well. According to Realtor.com, 54% of luxury homebuyers desire a chef’s kitchen. These ultra-modern and sophisticated kitchens can be integrated with advanced technologies to be tech-friendly too –from having smart refrigerators that make your grocery lists for you, to no-touch faucets and Bluetooth smart thermometers that notify your mobile device when food is ready.
LUXURY ENTERTAINMENT AMENITIES
Buyers won’t be satisfied with outdated home-entertainment systems. Luxury residences redefine at home leisurely enjoyment of films, TV shows or simply listening to music with the top of the line sound equipment, projectors or large spaces for exceptional televisions, and indoor/outdoor speakers. Pair these luxuries with plush couches and comfortable seating throughout to attract luxury buyers!
