Everyone’s preference is different when it comes to searching for the perfect home. Some care solely about location, while others are looking for a home with an open floor plan. But you may ask yourself, what is the most common selling point in today’s real estate market?
With data pulled from Trulia, we pinned a traditional selling point vs. a modern selling point to see what is more popular. Some may be obvious, while others may take you by surprise.
Soaking Tubs vs. Claw Foot Tubs
Soaking Tubs are actually more popular, according to Trulia.
Hardwood vs. Carpets
Hardwood – this was a bit obvious as most people prefer hardwood floors because they are easier to clean and are longer lasting.
Marble Countertops vs. Quartz Countertops
Quartz – while quartz countertops may initially be more expensive, marble countertops require more maintenance, which can add up.
White Cabinets vs. Dark Cabinets
White cabinets – these help create a bright, lighter, and bigger looking kitchen.
Subway Tile vs. Basketweave Tile
Subway tile – these types of backsplashes have become very popular over the past few years.
Floor-to-Ceiling Windows vs. Bay Windows
Bay windows – although the numbers were close, bay windows were a more popular selling point.
Sub-Zero Appliance vs. Viking Appliances
Sub-Zero appliances – another close one, but sub-zero took the lead here.
Electric Stoves vs. Gas Stoves
Gas Stoves – This is another obvious one, but gas stoves save money over time and are far better for cooking.
