9 Interior Home Features That Buyers Most Crave

Home buyers are sizing up homes with a long list of preferences.

The typical home shopper buys a home with three bedrooms and two full bathrooms, according to the National Association of REALTORS(R) 2013 Home Features Survey.

What feature did home shoppers report they most desire in a home?

Central air conditioning, according to the survey of 2,000 buyers on 33 home features. Central air conditioning was overwhelmingly the top home feature desired by home shoppers. A home that is cable/satellite TV-ready/Internet was also ranked highly.

What else should you be spotlighting of your listing ads for homes that you’re selling? Maybe after reading the list you’ll want to get a new hardwood floor installation, or a brand new ensuite master bathroom.

The NAR survey revealed the following eight interior design features that buyers ranked as “very important” in their home search:

1. The absence of mold or plumbing defects (More info at Mold Testing Anaheim)
