ENERGY EFFICIENT – NEW HOUSING TRENDS LOCALLY
From LA to Vancouver, Buyers are not asking as much for previous popular trends and instead seem to be trending back to more practicality. While this is not a huge percentage change, it indicates energy is becoming more important and builders are paying more attention.
Not As Popular
- outdoor kitchens
On The Rise
- Low-E windows
- walk-in master closets
- larger laundry rooms
- energy rated appliances
- programmable thermostats
Big trends like outdoor kitchens, sunrooms, media rooms, and whirlpools in the master bathroom have lost some demand. Now gaining ground is Low-E windows, walk-in master closets, larger laundry rooms, energy rated appliances, and programmable thermostats. And while whirlpool bathtubs may have declined, multiple shower heads have increased. Some builders report that with energy concerns, high 2-storey ceilings are not as popular and that somewhat lower ceilings appeal to those energy conscious Buyers.
These are just trends – many people still love baths and all the extras. Does this help you, hurt you or not affect you? Please comment below.
