Hardwood Floors Most Desired Feature in Homes

New York, NY, February 12, 2024-Hardwood floors are the most sought-after feature in a home, reports Yahoo News.

"Frontdoor.com has published a study that reveals the most popular home features in the U.S., based on Zillow’s search data. To come up with their findings, the company’s analysts ‘ranked home features on the number of average daily views received by home listings on Zillow containing each feature.’

“And the most sought-after home feature in the country? It’s hardwood floors.

“According to the report, the average hardwood-floored property got 261 views a day on Zillow, while the two next most desired features, open-plan areas and en-suites, only racked up 226 and 214 views a day, respectively.

“In addition, hardwood floors are so in-demand right now that 54% of prospective buyers said that they would pay more for a place with this feature. 64% of homeowners who installed the floors themselves, meanwhile, said that they appreciate their living spaces more.”
