What Do North Shore Homebuyers Want?


Sales of existing homes in March 2019 were down 4.9% from the previous month and home sales were down 5.4% from a year ago according to the National Association of Realtors. Luckily, the Midwest, including the North Shore, still has a strong real estate market. Even with the strong market we are faced with a short supply of homes to meet the demand of today’s homebuyers.

So how do you make your house stand out against the competition?

You could start by making sure your home has all the features homebuyers want most. The National Association of Home Builders surveyed recent and prospective buyers to find out what was deemed essential or desirable.  Based on the report, here are the top features North Shore homebuyers would like to see.

  • Energy Star certification
  • Double kitchen sink
  • Hardwood floors
  • Walk-in pantry
  • Exterior lighting
  • Garage storage
  • Ceiling fans
  • Energy Star rated appliances
  • Patio
  • Energy Star rated windows
  • Laundry room
