There’s no doubt it’s a seller’s market right now. However, things change quickly and could wind down without a moment’s notice. To prep for that future shift, it’s important to stay on top of changing buyer trends. If you’re marketing a property, there are certain real estate keywords that will attract today’s buyers, according to a point2homes.com report.
– Lux amenities matter, especially in the kitchen. Buyers want “granite countertops,” “hardwood floors” and “stainless steel appliances.” For bedrooms, buyers put particular emphasis on “walk-in closets.”
– Space is still trending. Keywords such as “large,” “great,” “full” and “spacious” are being used regularly. This goes for bathroom as well. Forget half-baths, according to the report, “full bathroom” is the priority right now. Anything “bonus” is attractive as well, including “laundry room” and “home office.”
– No one wants to struggle with parking. Buyers really want a space to put their car, whether in a dedicated “parking” spot or in a “garage.”
Here are the 100 most used real estate terms:
