Housing trends have changed a lot over the years. In the past, it was all about the size of the home, and bigger was for a long time considered better. But, Trusst Builder Group, one of the leading custom builders in Wilmington is finding that today’s homebuyers are shifting their focus to quality over size. With the economy still on uncertain ground, homebuyers want to ensure that they are not only getting a good value for their money but that they are also keeping their housing budget more comfortably within their means.
Emerging Trends in Custom Homes
Throughout the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s, American families were purchasing homes that were as big as their money could buy. For many who got caught up in “keeping up the Joneses,” the reality of purchasing too much home quickly became evident when the mortgage crisis hit. But, today’s homebuyers are a smarter and savvier bunch. Budget is a key concern and homebuyers know that a reduced size can still be comfortable and effective for the family’s needs – if the floor plan and home amenities are of outstanding quality and optimally designed.
What Matters Most to Today’s Homebuyers?
Modern homeowners are very particular about what they are looking for in their custom built homes. And today’s buyers are better aware about what makes for a great home. After all, what good is a massive frame of a house if it doesn’t fit a family’s needs? On the other hand, when a custom home is designed properly, it is not as necessary for a family’s home to be of a certain size. Smarter designs equal more effective living space and this allows families to get the absolute most use out of their homes for the amount of dollars they are spending.
With homebuyers focusing on quality over size, Trusst finds that today’s hottest building trends include:
- Energy efficiency
- Durable, high-grade construction materials
- Smartly-placed bedrooms
- Full-service kitchens
- Eco-friendly materials (paint, flooring, etc.)
- Bright, naturally-lit rooms
- Outdoor living spaces
- Automated controls
