Trulia’s Love and Housing Survey 2012 When Home Buying

Men vs. Women… Women on Home Features The Love Most America’s More Lovable Property Features

It’s no surprise to hear, men and women are wired differently, but not when it comes to the features of their homes.

Recent research shows when it comes to home buying, there’s little difference in what men & women love the most. Trulia asked which home amenity would make you personally, fall in love with a home?

Here were the top answers:

Both agree the Master Bath, Walk-in Closet and Gourmet Kitchen are top priorities when it comes to finding their dream home, but not all features are created equal. Among the top features, women and men each showed they had a little more love for a few key features at the top of the list:

What women love (more than men):

  • Master Baths
  • Walk in Closets
  • Gourmet Kitchens

What men love (more than women):

  • Pre-Wiring for Entertainment System
  • Pool
  • Hot tub

What the data means, if you’re a home seller thinking about a remodel – keep in mind what’s top of mind for today’s buyer. If you’re in the home buying market, look for these features in your next home – your list may have these items in a different priority.
