Success Stories
“Stacey Hughes Anderson far exceeded our expectations as a realtor. She was first empathetic, knowing that selling our lake cabin was a decision that did not come easy. More than that though, she did her job with excellence. She took care of every detail, starting with staging and listing preparation, but also arranging for several repairs and improvements that we needed to make prior to closing. Throughout the process, she communicated very effectively with us, and represented our interests well. She went above and beyond the duties of a realtor. Selling our cabin was not without its challenges, and Stacey shined throughout the entire process, making the experience as easy as possible on us. She knows the market very well, but differentiated herself through service. We give her our highest recommendation”

What Home Buyers Want Most This Spring

Posted: May 15, 2017

Home buyers, through the years, tend to value the same things. It makes sense. Though styles may vary and specific preferences may change, at the end of the day, we all want the same things out of our homes.

Generally speaking, it all comes down to storage, space, and a sense of security. This year is no different. For example, a newly released survey of hopeful spring home buyers found that privacy was the top goal cited when asked what they valued most. Privacy even beat out family needs, which came in a close second. As for storage and space, garages and backyards were also near the top of the priorities list for most buyers. Demographically, younger buyers were more likely to want a large yard, while garages were particularly popular with buyers over the age of 55.

Either way, it's clear that this year's house hunters have common needs. There is one need, however, that buyers share more than any other. When asked which room was most important to them, 80 percent of respondents named the kitchen. For obvious reasons, the kitchen is consistently ranked high atop buyers' wish lists. After all, no matter how young or old a buyer is, they need to eat – which is why a good kitchen is always a draw for home shoppers.
