This was an interesting read that we wanted to share.  The National Association of Home Builders recently posted a survey that was taken from builders in December 2015 of features that would most likely be included in the typical single-family homes slated for build in 2016.  The features most likely to show up were:

  • Walk-in closet in the master bedroom
  • Laundry Room
  • Great Room
  • Low-e Windows
  • ENERGY STAR Appliances & Windows
  • Programmable thermostats
  • 9+ foot ceilings on the first floor
  • Central island and granite countertops in the kitchen

Features less likely to appear in new homes in 2016:

  •  Cork flooring in the living areas of the main level
  •  Pet washing station
  •  Laminate countertops in the kitchen
  •  Outdoor kitchen
  •  Two story spaces in the family room and foyer
