What Home Buyers Look For in
a Luxury Home
Luxury home buyers continue to spend hundreds of thousands
of dollars on the most sophisticated options and upgrades.
According to industry insiders, many spend 20% of the base
price on extras; and they have more to extras from which to
choose than ever before. Home buyers look for location and
size to fit their needs, amenities to meet their needs, character
to fit their character and lifestyle, prestige, and sometimes
the following. Popular options
- high ceilings
- in-shower stereos
- walk-in refrigerators
- master-bedroom fridges
- cappuccino centers
- heating coils in the floors
- putting greens
- custom lighting including chandeliers
- mahogany woodwork
- stone tiles, molding and
- exotic or "reclaimed"
Affluent buyers usually get everything
they want up front because extras can be more difficult and
expensive to install later on. To avoid delays, subdivision
builders keep upgrades to a minimum; but luxury buyers, whose
homes take a year or two or more to complete, are given free
reign to choose the most unique accessories.
