The definition of an ideal home varies from person to person, from time to time. A span of ten years can bring about huge changes in home designs
Fremont, CA: Home designs are constantly changing to keep pace with the latest trends and to realize homebuyers' demands and preferences. The definition of an ideal home varies from person to person, from time to time. A span of ten years can bring about huge changes in home designs.
Here are 3 ways new homes have changed from 2010 to 2020:
The Location Matters
Location has always been an important factor for homebuyers. It is more about what the location offers than the location itself is what matters. Homebuyers, in general, look for a home that comes with comforts and conveniences such as large retail stores, supermarkets, shops, restaurants, and hospitals. Therefore, new home construction aims to fulfill that demand. Despite all the new constructions happening in the large metro cities, populated areas still have less number of single-family detached homes.
More Technology Inclusion
The constant tech-revolution has given birth to several innovative technologies within the 10 years span. Homebuilders, driven by energy efficiency goal, are incorporating the latest technologies- smart thermostats, home control systems, etc. - to enhance the functionality of the homes.
In the upcoming decade, incessant tech-advancements can have homebuyers witness their new houses being built with new technology like 3D printing, which can drastically reduce the overall cost and completion time of a new house.
Upsurge in the Number Bedrooms
Historically, the large percentage of newly constructed homes includes the ones with three or four bedrooms, and the lower percentage covers the ones with two bedrooms or less or five bedrooms or more.
As per the National Association of Home Builders and data derived from the U.S. Census Bureau's Survey of Construction (SOC), there has been an upsurge in the number of four- or five-bedroom homes built over the past decade, making up the larger percentage of newly built homes. Though it kept fluctuating over the past ten years, two-bathroom homes still dominate the market.
