SANTA CLARA, Calif. – April 12, 2017 – Ranch-style homes, large backyards and updated kitchens top shoppers' wish lists this spring, according to realtor.com's latest home buyer survey. More than half of home seekers want a three-bedroom home, while 75 percent of shoppers are considering a two-bathroom home.
The survey, based on March data from shoppers on realtor.com, provides insight into home buying trends in 2017 by analyzing the features shoppers are looking for this spring and summer – the peak home buying seasons.
"The insights from our most recent consumer survey provide a glimpse into what buyers are looking at today," says Sarah Staley, housing expert for realtor.com. "While we often think of dream homes as being big and bold, that's not what we're hearing from potential buyers today."
