Most Asheville home buyers have to sacrifice some of their wants to find a new home. Unless they have unlimited funds and time, chances are there are “must-haves” which outweigh the “like-to-have” items on the list. Yet, there are always features that these buyers refuse to part with, and they might surprise you.
1. Outdoor Space – Over the past decade or so, outdoor spaces have become extensions of the home. From outdoor kitchens to outdoor living rooms, the line between interior and exterior has blurred. Home buyers have embraced this way of living and are insisting on some kind of outdoor patio or space when looking for a new home.
2. Garages – Today’s home buyer wants a garage. True, some of them plan to use it for non-traditional purposes, such as for storage or home gyms, but they still insist on a garage. Even with the rise of ride-share services and public transportation options, statistics show that the average household owns 1.95 cars and studies demonstrate they are looking for a home with at least a single-car garage.
Home buyers realize they might have to make sacrifices when searching for a new home in the Asheville area. Surprisingly, while these buyers might be willing to compromise on other aspects of the home, outdoor space and garages are among the “must-have” items in 2020.
