What Buyers Are Looking For in 2022


Many buyers are attracted to outdoor living spaces. 

As houses on the market increase in cost, now is as good a time as ever to sell--plus, most homeowners buy between the months of April and June. If you're considering a transition, you might be wondering what you can do to enhance your home and prepare it for sale. What are buyers attracted to this year? Keep reading as we dive into the most sought-after features and amenities of 2022:

The Laundry Room 
Many homes have washer and dryer hookups located in the bathroom. However, what homeowners really want is a separate laundry room. This room of the house is one of the messiest; people want to have that extra space to hide the clutter. If you don't have an extra room, the basement would be the best option for this setup. 

The Half Bathroom
This one may surprise you, but it's true: buyers want at least one half bath in their home. After all, less room in the bathroom means less to clean up. Half bathrooms are the perfect size to entertain guests. So, if you were worried that your half bath was going to turn buyers away, worry no more! 

Outdoor Space 
Backyards have always been a popular addition to the home, but we're seeing a rise in demand for this particular feature in 2022. Previous Covid-19 lockdowns have left many people feeling cramped and drained because of a lack of outdoor activity; homeowners are looking forward to spending time outside with friends and family this year. Enhance your backyard by adding some unique outdoor furniture, cool kitchen appliances or even a cinema area.
