Exterior Landscape Preferred Over Interior Square Footage in 2017

Exterior Landscape Preferred Over Interior Square Footage in 2017

A RealtorMagazine article earlier this year shared a study with regards to buyer preferences in today’s market, showing that buyers will sacrifice interior square footage in exchange for a fabulous outdoor space. Buyers prefer a property that offers great outdoor space - perfect for their pets and for entertaining! 

Their survey showed that women prefer outdoor space more than men (62% of women surveyed, compared to 51% of men). In Charlotte, those numbers are likely even higher - almost all of our buyers are seeking some form of outdoor living space; in fact, the more elaborate, the better!

Outdoor Living in Charlotte NC

This home (and backyard space) has sold (of course!) and is a prime example of a wonderfully flowing entertaining home that leads to this spacious, private, outdoor sanctuary. The buyers absolutely love coming home to this space and enjoying the wonderful four seasons that we have here in Charlotte. 

Who wouldn’t love the built-in grill with gas line (so no gas tank exchange required!), the extensive kitchen prep area with refrigerator and storage area for ease when entertaining or simply having a private, romantic dinner on the patio? Or, imagine a sunset fire in the outdoor fireplace while enjoying a glass of wine with your favorite person in the world…

What you don’t see is the Koi pond that adds to the outdoor serenity in this fabulous space that is being thoroughly enjoyed by these very lucky buyers!
