Men vs. Women: America’s More Loveable Property Features
It’s no secret, men and women are wired differently. But recent research shows that when it comes to features that motivate them to buy, the connection between the sexes isn’t a battle.
America’s most lovable features
While there’s a small difference in what they love the most, our recent survey showed both men and women agree on which top features make them fall in love with a home.
When we asked first-time home buyers “which home amenity would make you, personally, fall in love with a home?,” here were the top answers:
|Pre-wired for entertainment system (e.g., home theater, surround sound)||35%||42%||28%|
The big feature conflict
While men and women agree that the master bath, walk-in closet and gourmet kitchen are top priorities when it comes to finding their dream home, not all features are created equal. Among the top features, women and men each showed they had a little more love for a few key features at the top of the list:
What women love (more than men):
- Master Baths
- Walk in Closets
- Gourmet Kitchens
Favorites men love (more than women):
- Pre-Wiring for Entertainment System
- Hot tub
What the data means for agents
For buyer’s agents, be sure to send and highlight these key motivating features when selecting and showing homes to first-time buyers. For agents with listings, make sure you highlight these features in your listing description.
