As a custom homebuilder in the Capital Region, we work hard to provide our customers with what they are truly looking for in a home. This means we have to stay up to date and in tune with which features are most popular with homebuyers at any given time!

So what’s popular with homebuyers these days? Here are a few home features lots of customers are looking for in new and custom-built homes.

First Floor Master Bedrooms

Homebuyers of all ages are loving the convenience of first floor master bedrooms. For older homebuyers and seniors, having the master bedroom on a home’s ground level makes it accessible without the use of stairs, which is a huge perk. Younger homebuyers enjoy the convenience of having the master suite on the first floor, and like the fact that – because of its popularity – a first floor master bedroom is great for resale!

Check out these great home models that feature first floor master bedrooms!

Two Car Attached Garage

Here in the Northeast where we get lots of snow and ice in the winter, garages are a MUST for many homebuyers. Having a two car garage keeps cars out of the weather during every season and can provide some additional storage space for outdoor items, sporting equipment and more. Attached garages provide extra convenience, making it easy to bring groceries into the house from the car, pack and unpack the vehicle for trips and more.

Because attached garages are so popular, you’ll see that most of the home models we offer include attached two car garages!

Walk In Closets

Storage space is key for homebuyers! While many buyers look for adequate storage space throughout the home, most buyers are particularly interested in large bedroom closets. As a result, walk in closets have become incredibly popular in newer homes – including the home models that we build for our clients here at Heritage! Take a look at the floorplans for our available models and you’ll see many of them include large bedroom closets and storage spaces throughout!

Outdoor Spaces

While a home’s interior is key, many homebuyers are concerned with a home’s outdoor spaces as well. People love to entertain outside, spend time in their backyards and have a place to relax and get some fresh air. For this reason, porches, decks and patios have become increasingly popular home features. They are great extensions of the home, providing convenient areas for homeowners to enjoy the outdoors the comfort of their own home simultaneously.

Many of our models feature optional outdoor spaces including front porches, back decks and covered patios, giving homebuyers the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful neighborhoods and communities they live in to the fullest!

Open Concept

Homebuyers these days really gravitate towards open floor plans. This makes homes feel spacious and roomy, and provides great space for entertaining. It also often allows for more natural light in the home and creates a natural flow that many homebuyers like.

Many of the custom homes we build feature open floor plans. Check out our gallery of homes for a glimpse at some of our open, spacious designs.
