First-Time Buyers Don’t Want Elevators, Golf Courses



A study of top-demanded and least-demanded items to first-time homebuyers also found that many want hardwood floors – but not cork or bamboo.



CHICAGO – A laundry room tops the wish list of first-time home buyers, according to the recent report What Home Buyers Really Want, 2021 Edition, released by the National Association of Home Builders. The study asked first-time buyers to rate more than 200 home features.


10 features first-time buyers want most



    • Laundry room: 83% (45% essential, 38% desirable)

    • Ceiling fan: 81% (46% essential, 35% desirable)

    • Exterior lighting: 81% (34% essential, 47% desirable)

    • Double kitchen sink: 80% (38% essential, 42% desirable)

    • Hardwood floors: 80% (37% essential, 43% desirable)

    • Walk-in pantry: 80% (34% essential, 46% desirable)

    • Drinking water filtration: 78% (37% essential, 41% desirable)

    • Patio: 78% (31% essential, 47% desirable)

    • Security cameras: 78% (30% essential, 48% desirable)

    • Kitchen space for eating: 77% (35% essential, 42% desirable)


First-time home buyers also ranked several home features much lower on their priority list. According to the survey, these are the ones low on their list of desired amenities.
