How are you surviving the quarantine? Have you been working on improving your current home? If so, you are like almost a third of those in a new study who have started a home improvement or “small around the home projects.” Another 15% are still planning on starting a project. But I’ll wager, the one thing many, if not most, are doing as well is dreaming about their next home.
Realtor.com and Toluna surveyed 1300 homeowners about their feelings regarding their current and future homes. Not surprisingly in this time of working from home, homeschooling, and the need to just get out of the house for an hour, 19% wished they had more living space in their current home. Another 9% wanted their own yard or patio. Among the responses to what they LIKED about their current home, 13% said their quiet neighborhood and another 13% said the outdoor space.
When these same homeowners were asked what they wanted in their next home, only 11% said they were happy with their current house. But for the almost 90% who ARE dreaming of their next home, the top 2 “must haves” were (surprise, surprise – NOT) more living space and outdoor space. Those were followed closely by wanting an updated kitchen and better Wi-Fi.
