What DON’T Wellington Florida Buyers Want in a House?

Have you ever lived in an apartment and said to yourself “When I buy a house it’s going to have a full-sized washer and dryer.” “When I buy a house it’s not going to have 3 flights of steps.” “When I buy my next house it’s going to have a 4th bedroom.”

Before buyers even become real buyers they already have a list in their head of what they want in their next home, but a majority of these Buyers also have a longer list of what they don’t want.

What DON'T Wellington Florida Buyers WANT in a House

We all know everyone wants the best house they can afford in the best neighborhood with the prettiest manicured streets, and friendly neighbors, but does anyone know what Buyers don’t want?

Here are the 3 most common things Wellington Florida buyers have told me they don’t want in a home:

1. Closed Floorplan:  Open floorplans are in high demand.

  • They typically make a home feel larger.
  • If the floorplan is open the likelihood of the ceilings being vaulted is greater, which can make the rooms feel bigger.

2. Backing to a Road:  Most buyers do not want their new home to back to a road for several reasons.

  • They have children or animals they are concerned will escape into traffic.
  • They don’t want to hear the traffic noise.
  • They are concerned the road might be expanded and become even closer to their backyard.

3. Frame Construction:  Being in South Florida a majority of my clients want a CBS (Concrete Block Structure) home, their reasoning’s:

  • Homeowners insurance is typically less on a CBS built home.
  • The potential damage from a hurricane may be less
  • Termites may be limited or non-existent.

So why is this information important? The main reason is resale value. Even though you might not mind backing to a road, the next person who’s considering buying your house might. It is extremely important to always keep resale value in mind when buying a home. Yes, most Buyers have no intention of ever moving, but things happen along the way that might force you to sell your home. Therefore, it is extremely important to not only buy a home that meets your needs but one that will meet a future buyer’s needs as well.
