Each year, the list of amenities luxury homebuyers are seeking changes. As technology advances at a break-neck pace, many of the top requested amenities are based in new technology. Earlier this week, we took a look at how more and more homebuyers are opting for amenities over home size these days, so clearly these modern conveniences are important. Here we will look at 10 of the top objects of desire for luxury homebuyers in 2017.
Home Automation Technology
Buyers in LA’s hot market are looking for convenience, and what could be more convenient than a fully automated home? These high-tech systems offer entertainment, security, lighting controls, temperature adjustment and a myriad of other home conveniences. Some can even be adjusted with just the sound of your voice.
Home Theaters and Entertainment Centers
Luxury homebuyers expect their new home to have a great place to gather with friends and family. Many buyers want high-end home theaters to take in new releases with the family. Others want luxury entertainment spaces like game rooms, billiard rooms and full bar areas, all with plenty of space to entertain.
Wine Storage and Tasting Rooms
A new trend to watch is the increase in wine storage and wine tasting rooms. They can be found in an increasing number of high-end homes. These showstoppers are a must for those who love to entertain.
Private Gyms and Spas
A continuing trend from 2016 is the rise in fully equipped home gyms, yoga spaces and spa rooms. With high price tags, luxury homebuyers expect to have the amenities they might have at a top-end resort hotel.
While this trend might not be for all homebuyers, for those with a penchant for cars, amped up garages are a must. Car collectors and enthusiasts are now asking for larger garages and sprawling motor courts to show off their love of vehicles.
While a view isn’t something you can add to a home, it is a definite plus for high-end homebuyers. A property with a panoramic view will earn top dollar in the luxury market. In Los Angeles, if you find an unobstructed, center-stage, panoramic city view, your home will be the talk of the town.
Buyers want the most space for their dollar, so what better way to increase your living space than by taking advantage of the outdoors. Open outdoors spaces and backyard living rooms are all the rage. Including a cabana, outdoor kitchen and dining area make for outdoor living that any buyer can appreciate.
Another amenity continuing to trend from 2016 are resort-style swimming pools. Buyers are clamoring for Olympic-sized lap pools, as well as infinity pools that disappear into the scenic views. The more unique and dramatic the pool space, the more buyers will want it.
Land and Privacy
While land comes at a premium in Los Angeles, it is something buyers want. A sizable lot with usable land and mature landscaping draws buyers in. By offering privacy from passers-by, it creates an added amenity that every luxury homebuyer wants.
More and more luxury homes are now coming with features like basketball courts, tennis courts, putting greens, racquet ball courts, miniature baseball diamonds and even bowling alleys. These make for great ways to draw in buyers with a family, as well as those who love to entertain.
