From condos to expansive single family homes, the indulgence-de-jour buyers are interested in bathroom floors featuring radiant heating.
Towel warmers seem to have lost their luster by comparison. We are also seeing that same radiant heat popping up under tiled kitchen floors –
it won’t be long before consumers are asking for warm toes while they drink their morning joe as well.

Buyers are currently looking for an open lay out on the first floor; They love white kitchens and bright colors on the walls (forget about red, blue and other strong colors). As far as the exterior, the size of the back yard should be big enough for at least a swing set; For higher priced homes the lot should include a pool or have room for a pool to be added.

The updated kitchen has always been at the top of the list and it continues to be the feature that most people want. However, if you’re selling
your house and the kitchen is not top of the line, you don’t necessarily have to gut or renovate. You can get good results and spend considerably less by simply putting in new appliances, counters and flooring as needed. After the kitchen, the feature very popular with millennials is the
open floor plan.
