“Most people want a mid-sized, modern home in the suburbs with a backyard deck,” said Selma Hepp, chief economist of Trulia. “Americans are pretty realistic and practical when it comes to what they want in their dream home.”
Here are the top 3 features, broken down in numbers:
- 44% of respondents want an average-sized home between 1,401 and 2,600 square feet — choosing a home that is not too big or too small.
- When describing where their dream home is located, most respondents are evenly split between wanting to live in the countryside (27%) and the suburbs (27%) rather than in the heart of a major American city (8%).
- Most Americans are less modest when it comes to the amenities they desire in their dream home: 59% say they want a backyard deck. Other features they want in their dream home include a balcony with a view (45%), gourmet kitchen (47%), vegetable garden (40%), open floor plan (38%) and swimming pool (38%).
