If you look at any home on Zillow, you’ll see that most of the top selling homes have the same five design features. These homes are flying off the market, so it might seem hard to find a home with all of your “must-haves.” But, that doesn’t mean your dream home is out of reach. When you build on your lot, you can enjoy many of these popular features, as well as the benefits of new construction. These five design features are at the top of buyers’ wishlists and are coming soon to your dream home.

1. Granite Countertops

Everyone wants granite countertops. They’re one of the most popular design features. Why? The long-lasting durability, clean sight lines, and multi-tonal color. It’s a timeless look that balances out any kitchen or bathroom and you can wrap the cost into your construction loan, rather than paying for it out of pocket while renovating an existing home

Beautiful granite countertops will give your kitchen a luxurious and modern look.

2. Master Bathroom Sanctuary

No one wants to share a bathroom with their children. When you build on your lot, you’ll be able to customize your master bathroom to feel like an at-home spa, free of kids’ bath toys.  While many homes for sale don’t have private master baths, you’ll find that the ones that do sell the fastest. Treat yourself to a relaxing bubble bath after a long day or try a homemade face mask. Create a luxurious retreat in your own home, with a tiled shower and soaker tub that you can enjoy any time.
