Today’s home buyers aren’t searching for expansive homes with endless bedrooms.

A kitchen that impresses
The kitchen continues to be a major draw for home buyers of all ages—80% of them ranked it as one of their three favorite rooms in their home. (The others were the master bedroom, at 49%, and the living room, with 42%.) There’s a strong desire among buyers for an updated kitchen, so consider investing in upgrades that will pay off. Even if your budget doesn’t stretch that far, consider a less expensive project to give your kitchen a fresh look.
The great outdoors
Parents of young children are particularly excited about finding a large yard, although that feature ranked high with just about everyone. While you can’t really make your yard bigger, you can work to maximize its usable space, and create an outdoor room that’s inviting for the entire family.

In a kind of package deal with the big backyard, buyers also said they really, really want a garage. Shoppers aged 55 and up, in particular, actually preferred garages over living rooms! So if you’re thinking of converting your garage into a man cave to impress buyers, don’t. (More on man caves below…)
